An accessible dictionary of the key terms, ideas, influence and legacy of G.W.F. Hegel, one of the most important German Philosophers of the 19th Century. "The Hegel Dictionary" is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the world of G.W.F. Hegel, one of the most important and influential thinkers in the history of philosophy. Meticulously researched and extensively cross-referenced, this unique book provides a firm grounding in the central themes of Hegel's thought. Students will discover a wealth of useful information and analysis. A-Z entries include clear definitions of key terms used in Hegel's writings and detailed synopses of his major works. "The Dictionary" also includes entries on Hegel's philosophical influences, such as Kant, Fichte, and Schelling, and those he influenced, including Marx. It covers everything that is essential to a sound understanding of Hegel's philosophy, offering clear and accessible explanations of often complex terminology. "The Hegel Dictionary" is the ideal resource for anyone reading or studying Hegel or Modern European Philosophy more generally. "The Continuum Philosophy Dictionaries" offer clear and accessible guides to the work of some of the more challenging thinkers in the history of philosophy. A-Z entries provide clear definitions of key terminology, synopses of key works, and details of each thinker's major themes, ideas and philosophical influences. "The Dictionaries" are the ideal resource for anyone reading or studying these key philosophers.

Reviewed in the Tijdschrift voor Filosofie 73 (2011), 3 Magee's determination to make Hegel accessible will, one hopes, be rewarded by a new generation of readers prepared for their own adventures in the concept. Professor Magee's text covers the whole of Hegel's works. Each entry if clearly written with examples that make Hegel's terms and ideas understandable without simplifying their meanings or inclining them toward one interpretation or another. This work is invaluable for anyone studying Hegel's philosophy, especially those coming to his writings for the first time. Journal of European Studies vol 42 issue 1
