This is an auction for HEGEL by Charles Taylor.

"Professor Taylor is a stimulating and lucid guide....His book is to be strongly recommended to anyone who wants to understand the origins and style and content of modern ideologies."
- The Economist

"...the most important book on Hegel ever to appear in English."
- Journal of European Studies reviews:

"A major and comprehensive study of the philosophy of Hegel, his place in the history of ideas, and his continuing relevance and importance. Taylor relates Hegel to the earlier history of philosophy and, more particularly, to the central intellectual and spiritual issues of his own time. He engages with Hegel sympathetically, on Hegel's own terms and, as the subject demands, in detail. We are made to grasp the interconnections of the system without being overwhelmed or overawed by its technicality. We are shown its importance and its limitations, and are enabled to stand back from it."

"A sweeping, insightful and erudite survey of Hegel's work, originally published in 1975. The Taylor text has become a classic in the field of Hegelian studies. Overall the text is highly recommended for students of German idealism - an excellent tome."

"As other reviewers noted, this book is excellent. I have a few qualms, though. While Taylor is correct that Hegel cannot be seen as simply a "conservative," Hegel does embody most of the main 19th century views of conservatism: fear of revolution, fear of a free market, support for a hierarchical social order culminating in monarchy--Taylor notes the latter and is embarrassed by it. Still, a good read."
