Freedom and Reflection

Hegel and the Logic of Agency

Christopher Yeomans

  • By using the continuity between the contemporary concerns and those of Hegel's predecessors (particularly Kant), Yeomans shows the necessity of reference to the Logic in order to supplement Hegel's own practical philosophy and the scholarship based on it
  • Translates Hegel's jargon into a vocabulary that is easier for readers to understand.
  • Provides introductory discussions framing the central issues of each chapter both in terms of the problem of free will and in terms of the development of Hegel's argument to that point in the Logic.
  • Makes frequent use of examples in order to leaven the abstractness of Hegel's presentation.
