A historical novel, this is the beautifully told story of Louis Hegel, illegitimate son of the philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. Ultimately disowned by his father and forced to use his mother's name, Louis died in Indonesia, as Ludwig Fischer, at the age of 24--the bastard son of SPIRIT.

Review:

"This work is a brilliant polyphonic fiction on thought, eros, and the limits of philosophy, and its significance--both literary and philosophical--is undeniable. It is not just interesting but indeed captivating!" -- John Sallis

"The novel itself is not a narrative novel. It is instead a succession of voices from the past. On the one hand, the novel reflects Hegel's philosophy, which is entirely a philosophy of reflection and declares that all human civilization has now reached the stage of self-reflection. Yet in literature it is only in the last half of our century that novels have become self-reflective monologues. Thus while the mood and language of the book belong to Hegel's time, the genre belongs to our time." -- Alphonso Lingis
