About the Author:

William Maker is Associate Professor of Philosophy in the Philosophy and Religion Department at Clemson University.

Review:

The author offers a forthright, closely-reasoned, often pungently-worded series of arguments, often developing considerable persuasive momentum for considering Hegel as a non-metaphysical, non-foundational thinker, and for recognizing the continuing relevance of Hegel to ongoing philosophical discussion. Ever since the late 1960s contemporary philosophy has been rediscovering the radical Hegel buried under lazy interpretations from the past. This book advances this project and demonstrates aspects of its relevance in a cogent and compelling manner. Chip Sills, U.S. Naval Academy
Maker writes for the general philosophic reader and not for the reader already converted to his point of view. I was consistently made aware of implications of a point of view that I thought I had already pretty much grasped in full. I found myself forced to rethink matters that I thought I had settled for myself. Alan Ponikvar, College of Staten Island"

Ever since the late 1960s contemporary philosophy has been rediscovering the 'radical' Hegel buried under lazy interpretations from the past. This book advances this project and demonstrates aspects of its relevance in a cogent and compelling manner." -- Chip Sills, U.S. Naval Academy
