A Look Inside
Reviews
Review Quotes
"The book is clearly written, and Quante sets out his arguments in discrete steps, hence neither an expertise in neither Hegel nor analytic philosophy is essential for an appreciation of this book." - Patricia Calton, Rushford, Minnesota
'The book is exceptionally clear and well-written, the project is original and provocative, and the contribution to our understanding of both Hegel and agency is substantial.' Wayne Martin, University of California, San Diego
"...a careful study of Quante's book would be extremely valuable for anyone who wanted to get clearer on Hegel's contribution to the theory of action..." --David Ciavatta, Northern Arizona University: Philosophy in Review

Summaries
Main Description
This book is an important gateway through which professional analytic philosophers and their students can come to understand the significance of Hegel's philosophy for contemporary theory of action. As such it will contribute to the erosion of the sterile barrier between the continental and analytic approaches to philosophy. Michael Quante focuses on what Hegel has to say about such central concepts as action, person and will, and then brings these views to bear on contemporary debates in analytic philosophy. Crisply written, this book will thus address the common set of preoccupations of analytic philosophers of mind and action, and Hegel specialists.
