9780253012517: Tragedy in Hegel's Early Theological Writings (Indiana Series in the Philosophy of Religion)

Tragedy plays a central role in Hegel's early writings on theology and politics. Hegel’s overarching aim in these texts is to determine the kind of mythology that would best complement religious and political freedom in modernity. Peter Wake claims that, for Hegel at this early stage, ancient Greek tragedy provided the model for such a mythology and suggested a way to oppose the rigid hierarchies and authoritarianism that characterized Europe of his day. Wake follows Hegel as he develops his idea of the essence of Christianity and its relation to the distinctly tragic expression of beauty found in Greek mythology.

About the Author:

Peter Wake is Associate Professor of Philosophy at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.

Review:

Elegant. Combines the virtues of close reading of extraordinary subtlety with a wide-angle scope not only to Hegel's work as a whole, but also to the enduring value of the early work. (Cyril J. O'Regan University of Notre Dame)
