This book is not the Philosophy of History in full. It is only the first 3 sections (Original History, Reflective History, and Philosophical History) and leaves out the other + pages of the book.

This was not obvious in the purchasing process. If you're only looking for the first three sections: great. Otherwise, do not purchase this book/5(53).

In the Hegelian philosophy of the world, history occupies a special place, for it is in history that the World Spirit progresses toward self-consciousness.

Philosophy really took off, though, with Socrates and Plato in the 5th - 4th Century B.C. (often referred to as the Classical or Socratic period of philosophy).

The authors have created a sort of anti-Book of Virtues in this encyclopedic compendium of the ways and means of power.

The Philosophy of History is not a work that Hegel lived to see published. The massive text we have today is a reconstruction of a series of lectures Hegel gave at the University of Berlin in the.
