    Hegel’s Critique of Liberalism: Rights in Context. [REVIEW]Michael H. Hoffheimer - 1991 - The Owl of Minerva 23 (1):111-115.
    This excellent treatment of Hegel’s political philosophy sympathetically relates Hegel’s theory of the state to contemporary debates in political science. Smith has reworked material from previous studies to accomplish two difficult tasks gracefully. First, he introduces Hegel’s political philosophy to intelligent readers who are assumed to be unfamiliar with Hegel. This requires extended treatments of the philosophical context of Hegel’s views and of Hegel’s intellectual development. Second, he derives specific political views from Hegel and brings them to bear on current (...)

    Translating Knechtschaft.Michael H. Hoffheimer - 2001 - The Owl of Minerva 32 (2):169-175.
    Despite its recent revival, the Victorian practice of translating Knechtschaft as “slavery” is questionable. First, it fails to preserve Hegel’s own distinction between Knechtschaft and Sklaverei, the normal German noun for slavery. Second, the English word “slavery” carries strong associations that are absent from Knechtschaft, and the English word fails to communicate important meanings of Hegel’s term. In the latest Hegel-Studien, I examine different cultural associations of the words. Here I want to propose a solution and to suggest some larger (...)

    Political Writings.Michael H. Hoffheimer - 2001 - The Owl of Minerva 32 (2):216-223.
    This new translation of political writings by Hegel marks a major event in Hegel scholarship and provides a welcome opportunity to consider Dickey’s historical interpretation of Hegel’s political ideas and Nisbet’s translation strategies. It contains the best collection available of Hegel’s nonsystematic writings on political philosophy and provides a companion to the fine edition of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right that appears in the same series. The contents are arranged chronologically.

    Does Hegel Justify Slavery?Michael H. Hoffheimer - 1993 - The Owl of Minerva 25 (1):118-119.
    Mississippi Representative L.Q.C. Lamar was one of the most aggressive slavery supporters in Congress on the eve of the Civil War. Lamar had a personal stake in slavery, owning a plantation and 26 slaves in north Mississippi. In a speech delivered at the height of national debate on the slavery issue, Lamar attacked abolitionism and sought to justify slavery based on the supposed natural inferiority of blacks. His chief authority in the speech was Hegel.

    Law, Fossils, and the Configuring of Hegel’s Philosophy of Nature.Michael H. Hoffheimer - 1995 - Idealistic Studies 25 (2):155-173.
    This paper will draw on Hegel’s writings in Jena from 1801 to 1804, especially the fragments for a philosophy of nature from 1803-04, to explore his sustained concern with the proper configuration of a system of nature. Hegel’s earliest treatment of nature sheds light on the role of nature in the system he published over a decade later. Moreover, the earliest system illuminates two problems posed by his later philosophy of nature-the relationship of nature and spirit, and the sequence and (...)

    Hegel: A Biography, by Terry Pinkard.Michael H. Hoffheimer - 2003 - The Owl of Minerva 34 (2):187-196.
    This ambitious biography weaves a huge quantity of information into a rich and suggestive account of Hegel’s life and thought. Within the genre of trade biography, Terry Pinkard tells a readable story of Hegel’s personal life, discusses the genesis and content of his major writings, analyzes his leading ideas, and evaluates his significance for intellectual history. Accomplishing all this within Pinkard’s own lifetime has required compromises - notably the neglect of the voluminous literature and the reliance on existing compilations and (...)

    Law in Civil Society.Michael H. Hoffheimer - 1996 - The Owl of Minerva 28 (1):122-128.
    It is hard to imagine a revival of Schelling’s philosophy of medicine. But in the past decade, there have been seventy-five articles in American law reviews about Hegel’s philosophy of law. A comparable number of academic articles and books have also appeared. Richard Dien Winfield, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Georgia, ranks among the most ambitious and comprehensive scholars to apply Hegel to law. His latest book, Law in Civil Society, is a welcome companion to his other Hegelian (...)
