From the front dj flap: "This is the first English translation of the second part of Hegel's Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences. It provides a thoroughgoing and critical survey of the whole range of early nineteenth-century science. In a lengthy and most scholarly introduction Dr. Petry shows how Hegel came to develop them, and indicates their relevance to current issues. He identifies all Hegel's references to scientific literature of the day, and provides comprehensive notes to each of the three volumes."
