Join the Lewis & Clark Bookstore on November 18, 2014 to celebrate the latest book from Associate Professor of Philosophy, J.M. Fritzman: Hegel. Fritzman will speak about his book, with an opportunity for questions and dialogue.

 

Hegel (Wiley Publishing) introduces readers to the thought and writings of GWF Hegel, “one of the most influential and controversial thinkers of the nineteenth century,” and a thinker who is still relevant to debates in contemporary philosophy. “In a comprehensive discussion of the major works, J.M Fritzman considers crucial questions of authorial intent raised by the Phenomenology of Spirit, and discusses Hegel’s conceptions of necessity and of philosophical method. In his presentation of Hegel’s Logic, Fritzman evaluates the claim that logic has no presuppositions and examines whether this endorses a foundationalist or coherentist epistemology. Fritzman goes on to scrutinize Hegel’s claims that history represents the progressive realization of human freedom, and details how Hegel believes that this is also expressed in art and religion.

This book serves as both an excellent introduction to Hegel’s wide-ranging philosophy for students, as well as an innovative critique which will contribute to ongoing debates in the field.”
