Christine Williams presents this tidy overview of a vast and complex canon, her light, clear voice lending some much needed levity to the depths of Hegel’s thorny philosophical musings, often considered quite difficult to parse. Williams’ clear diction and careful pacing make this introduction accessible and even enjoyable - no small feat in the philosophical trenches....

    "Singer did a great job in presenting Hegel"

    Soundbook was very good and Singer did a great job in presenting the komplex Hegel in an non-komplex way.

    "Good Overview"

    For what it aspires to do, a very good brief introduction. It could be note exciting. Part of the issue is the narration which at times sounds a tad rote and tired. All said, however: recommended.
