G. W. F. Hegel (1770-1831) is one of the most significant
thinkers in the history of philosophy. He is the author of several
influential works, including The Science of Logic.
Peter Fuss is professor emeritus of philosophy at University of Missouri-St. Louis. He is co-translator with John Dobbins of G. W. F. Hegel's Three Essays, 1793-1795 (University of Notre Dame Press, 1984).
John Dobbins is a former research assistant at University of Missouri-St. Louis.
"An entrenched failing of Anglo-American philosophy is its neglect of Hegel. We have yet to reckon with how Hegel overcomes the dichotomies that confine modernity. Through decades of collaborative research, Peter Fuss and John Dobbins deliver with precision and grace a readable and teachable The Phenomenology of Spirit. Readers will awaken to a worldly Hegel who penetrates the drama and conceptual dynamism of human experience." -Patrick Murray and Jeanne Schuler, Creighton University
"The translators succeed masterfully in this effort and the result makes a considerable contribution to understanding this formidable text. . . . As I read their introduction, I had the impression that Hegel was suddenly-wonder of wonders-speaking English! Perhaps for the first time, he was saying clearly what he wanted to say to native speakers of American English like myself." -Daniel O. Dahlstrom, John R. Silber Professor of Philosophy, Boston University
