This book reminds us that the Brooklyn Bridge was designed by a Hegelian architect (John Augustus Roebling) and that a Hegelian philosopher (Henry C. Brokmeyer) was once governor of Missouri. But even those who know that Hegel has long played a role in American thought will find it odd that he should be taken up by literary critics. Hegel himself apologized for the style and language that his ideas forced upon him. Yet Hegelian ideas about literature--filtered through French minds (Derrida, Foucault, Lacan, and Barthes)--can now be found in front-page articles in The New York Times Book Review (see, for instance, the May 5, 1991 edition). In recalling Hegel's American incarnations, this book demystifies his ideas, and librarians may well want it on the shelf as a guide for baffled readers. The first two essays, by Bainard Cowan and Henry Sussman, are especially valuable. Libraries that have New Studies in the Philosophy of Hegel , edited by Warren E. Steinkraus (Holt, 1971. o.p.), may want to refer readers who want a more rounded picture of Hegel to that book.
