Hegel’s dialectical method produced the most grandiose metaphysical system known to man. Its most vital element was the dialectic of the thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. This sprung from Hegel’s aim to overcome the deficiencies of logic and ascend toward Mind as the ultimate reality. His view of history as a process of humanity’s self-realization inspired Marx to synthesize his philosophy of dialectical materialism.

In Hegel in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Hegel’s life and ideas and explains their influence on man’s struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Hegel’s work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Hegel within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

    " 90 minutes of Hegel is all anyone should need. In fact, 90 minutes is probably excessive. Still, if you have to read Hegel, try to get away with just reading this book instead. "

    " I just can't get into Hegel. Despite the fact that he had a RSME (Religious/Spiritual/Mystical Experience) which seems to have changed everything he believed in. His Writing never became comprehensible. "

    " Entertaining as all the other books of this series, but Strathern's tone is a wee bit too scornful in this one. "

    " continuing the journey of the 90 minutes series, this one on hegel was again clear and helpful but also irreverently funny. "
