He has been defined either as a metaphysician and characterised as an ironic narrator who expected the nature of philosophy after metaphysics. His place is both ambiguous with reference to his political notion. He has been construed either as an enemy of the liberal kingdom and as a pal of freedom.
This volume's revisionist reassessment, construction at the scholarship of Klaus Hartmann, explores those ambiguities in desire of a non-metaphysical examining of Hegel's arguments.
