Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit has acquired a paradoxical regulation as one of the most important and most impenetrable and inconsistent philosophical works. In Hegel's Idea of a Phenomenology of Spirit, Michael N. Forster advances an original reading of Hegel's text. His approach differs from that of previous scholars in two crucial ways: he reads it, first, as a whole -- not piecemeal, as it has usually been analyzed -- and second, within the context of Hegel's broader corpus and the works of other philosophers. The Phenomenology of Spirit emerges from this reading as an extraordinarily coherent meditation with a rich army of important and original ideas. These include a diagnosis of the ills of modernity in terms of its commitment to a series of dualisms, and a project for overcoming them; a sweeping naturalism; a deep rethinking of and response to problems of skepticism; subtle arguments for social theories of meaning and truth; and ideas based on the insight that human thought changes in fundamental ways over the course of history. Porster's unique and compelling reading unlocks the mysteries of Hegel's seminal work.
