Anti-Hegelian Reading of Economic Theory
2002 0-7734-7275-4
This book examines political economy through the eyes of a philosopher. The framework for analysis is a materialistic and naturalistic one based on logical considerations, identified with a Western philosophical tradition which stretches from Epicurus to Aquinas to Rousseau to the contemporary anti-Hegelian reaction of Feuerbach, Marx and Della Volpe. It builds an original philosophical approach, analyzes economic doctrines from the point of view of their logical shortcomings, producing a highly original view of the relationship between capitalist culture and political economy, and sketching an alternative political economy, concrete-based, historical and taxonomic.

Hegel's Philosophy of Mind and Will
1991 0-7734-9773-0
The book's introduction provides brief introductions to Hegel's methodology, philosophical system, and concept of Spirit. The book is then divided into 2 parts, the first concerned with Hegel's philosophy of Subjective Spirit, the second with his philosophy of Objective Spirit. It closely follows Hegel's chapters in the Philosophy of Spirit on Anthropology (the Soul), Phenomenology (Consciousness), and Psychology (Mind), which comprise Hegel's treatment of the cognitive ego in Subjective Spirit; and then follows the development of the volitional ego in Objective Spirit, through Hegel's chapters on Abstract Right (concerned with the rights and duties of the Person),Morality (which exposes the emptiness of individualistic morality),and finally Ethical Substance (which makes explicit the ethical character of the family, civil society, and the State.). The conclusion, after a brief recapitulation, focuses upon the relationship between Morality and Ethical Substance, viewing it in terms of limited fulfilled volition, respectively. The principle of Absolute Spirit is also briefly discussed in order to put Subjective and Objective Spirit in their overall developmental context. An appendix containing important passages from Hegel's Logic, a select bibliography, and a full index are provided.

Hegel's Science of Logic and Global Climate Change
2007 0-7734-5280-X
This study renders Hegel's Science of Logic intelligible through clear, empirical illustrations, and brings Hegel's complex philosophical ideas to life in a visceral, level-headed manner. It does so by elucidating the conceptual structure of Hegel's Science of Logic with concrete examples from global climate change. One can read the Science of Logic as a treatise on relations. Since climate change is brought about through a system of relations, this work plugs in the appropriate examples to illustrate Hegel's philosophical concepts, and shows how the nuanced account of relations found in Hegel's Science of Logic can be seen at work, empirically, in various facets of climate change. In turn, Hegel's Science of Logic provides a framework for addressing features of climate change such as understanding how it works, assessing its risks and impacts, and providing ethical arguments for mitigating climate change.

Hegel, Hinrichs, and Schleiermacher on Feeling and Reason in Religion. The Texts of their 1821-22 debate
1984 0-88946-352-2
A documentary study that presents: background on the debate between Hegel and Schleiermacher that parallels the writing of Hegel's preface to Hinrichs' work; the entire text of Hinrichs' "Religion in Its Internal Relationship to Systematic Knowledge"; plus appropriate introductions, annotations, a glossary, and a transcription of the German critical edition of Hegel's Hinrichs-Vorwort on which the new translation is based.

History and Interpretation of the Logic of Hegel
1992 0-7734-9509-6
The aim of this work is to outline a systematic historical account of the developments of Hegel's logic, both in his own works and those of his most significant followers, and on the basis of that, to outline a coherent interpretation and internal criticism (where this is needed) from a consistently `idealistic-transcendental' philosophical perspective.

History of Philosophy. From Decartes to Hegel by Arthur Ritchie Lord
2006 0-7734-5589-2
These volumes collect and introduce the major writings of the British/South African philosopher Arthur Ritchie Lord (1880-1941). Regarded as one of the finest minds in South African philosophy in the early twentieth century, Lord nevertheless published little during his lifetime part from his The Principles of Politics (1921) and a few short essays. The editors of these volumes bring together not only Lord’s published work, but almost all of his previously-unpublished lectures and essays.

This work provides a survey of philosophy from Descartes to Hegel, found in unpublished manuscripts of the British/South African philosopher Arthur Ritchie Lord.

Kantianism of Hegel and Nietzsche
2005 0-7734-5996-0
The present study renovates the standard narrative of how German philosophy progressed from Kant to Hegel to Nietzsche. It rejects the long-held assumption that Hegel and Nietzsche overturn Kantian metaphysics and aesthetics. It instead demonstrates, through clear and insightful discussions, the very particular manners in which Hegel and Nietzsche, in regard to questions of truth, value, and beauty, renovate and bring to fruition these three key aspects of Kant’s Critical Philosophy.

Ontological Proof in Anselm and Hegel. One Proof, Different Versions?
2013 0-7734-4329-0
The central purpose of this book is to look closely at a certain feature of the ontological proof – namely, its tendency to blur the distinction between the human and the divine. The works of Anselm and Hegel, who represent two different developments of the ontological proof, are compared and expertly analyzed.


Theological Reading of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit, with particular reference to its themes of Identity, Alienation and Community Salvation in a Social Context
1996 0-7734-8874-X
This study concerns the relationship between theology and socio-philosophy and considers the type of dialogical theory required to articulate the meaning of salvation socially. It gives practical content to a theological understanding of salvation through consideration of issues raised by Hegel in The Phenomenology of Spirit. The Introduction and Part I outline difficulties on the side of faith in articulating an idea of God's salvation for the contemporary needs and goals of society, in particular, the dualism between talking of 'the social' either in terms of the functions of collected individuals or as a single entity. Part 2 introduces critical interpretations of Hegel and his treatment of various social forms of alienation. Analysis of the text, combined with a survey of recent interpretation, provides the basis from which to discuss some of the deepest alienations of the human heart and social practice. In Part 3, using analogical reasoning, the book suggests that it is possible for theology both to learn from Hegel and his interpreters, and to criticize them, considering what is inadequate in Hegel's superseding of the Christian understanding of community. Relevant contributions from non-Christian social theorists, Jürgen Habermas in particular, are summarized and discussed. Concludes with implications for Christian social theory today.

Trumpet of the Last Judgment Against Hegel, the Atheist and Antichrist an Ultimatum
1989 0-88946-356-5
Translation of Bauer's Posaune des jüngsten Gerichts über Hegel, den Atheisten und Antichristen, an excellent example of the type of writing that characterized the radical school of Hegelianism in the late 1830s and 1840s in that it mirrors the arguments and irritable temper of both the liberal Hegelians and their conservative opponents during the period between the French Revolution of 1830 and the general revolutions of 1848. As David McClellan has noted, the Trumpet is "the locus classicus for the Young Hegelian view of Hegel, and a small masterpiece of their style of writing." As such, it is an excellent "period piece" that can enhance an appreciation of the Hegelian involvement in the theological and philosophical argumentation that characterized the German Vormärz.
