Hegel's Antiquity

Will D. Desmond

Classical Presences

  • Reveals and investigates Hegel's profound interest in the ancient world in an interdisciplinary analysis which will be of interest to classicists, philosophers, and historians
  • Discusses each of the major areas of his historical thinking in detail, from politics and philosophy, to art, religion, and history itself
  • Draws on both the ancient sources with which he worked, and the contemporary theories, including German aesthetic theory, Romanticism, and Idealism, which coloured his readings
