This book shows that the repeated announcements of the death of Hegel's philosophical system have been premature. Hegel's Philosophy of Freedom, Reality, and God brings to light accomplishments for which Hegel is seldom given credit: unique arguments for the reality of freedom, for the reality of knowledge, for the irrationality of egoism, and for the compatibility of key insights from traditional theism and naturalistic atheism. The book responds in a systematic manner to many of the major criticisms leveled at Hegel's system, from Feuerbach and Kierkegaard to Heidegger and Charles Taylor. It provides detailed interpretations of Hegel's Philosophy of Spirit, large parts of his indispensable Science of Logic, and important parts of his Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Right. Unlike many academic books on Hegel, this one treats him very much as a 'live' thinker, whom we can learn from today.

Caveat: I'm just a little over half-way through the book (Chapter 4). Given that, I can say that so far Wallace's writing is usually clear, considering the subject matter. The central theme of the text seems to be how Hegel avoids an atomistic/egoistic ethics. This thesis is argued using views set forth in various of Hegel's works, especially his Science of Logic. Wallace's text is not for someone new to Hegel. A beginner would be wise to start at one of the many introductory texts, such as those by Peter Singer, Stephen Houlgate, Frederick Beiser and so on. For someone like myself, who has avoided the tears involved in reading Hegel directly and focused instead on the secondary literature, this interpretation might spur one to dip into the Logic itself.

This text is one of the finest on the subject that I know of. I have recommended it to everyone that I know, including a few who, for whatever reasons, have a rather intractable grudge against Hegel. I have even posted what seems to be an abstract of the book in a few news groups that I thought would benefit from it, and in doing so I felt confident to recommend the text without any caveats or slippery face-saving backdoors. That I can feel that secure about a text on the finer points of Hegel suggests quite a lot about the author.

Chapter Three is a gem. Simple, straight-forward, with an uncompromisingly

rational momentum but with a conversational sense of ease so that the text never for a moment became turgid. No mean feat.

To start there is a very lucid account of what Hegel means by "freedom" including the relationship between Hegel's view and Kant's. This becomes more detailed in chapter 2 where Wallace contrasts the positions contemporary philosophers like Bernard Williams hold and how they relate schematically to Wallace's interpretation of Kant and Hegel. W argues that while many use Kant in their discussions though many misinterpret Kant, few use Hegel and it seems simply because he is not understood. But Hegel's version of Kant seems to be the more powerful view.

p. 14 Hegel argues that "I seem to seek a standard by which to assess my desires (Philosophy of Right 17-18), that finding such a standard would involve systematizing my desires in some rational way (19), "purifying" and "forming" them into a life that makes sense as a whole (19-20)...

W critiques both Hobbes and David Gauthier ("Morals by Agreement") on morals arguing that Hegel (as interpreted by W) is the better view. This includes a discussion contrasting social contract versus Plato and Hegel on justice. Plato: one's rational part is not doing its job. Aristotle discusses this also in the Nichomachean Ethics though it seems "only a minority of readers take him to be addressing this issue at all." P. 39

Robert M. Wallace has taken Hegel scholarship another step forward by providing his keen insights in the aptly named book Hegel's Philosophy of Reality, Freedom and God. The first few chapters provide a good introduction to the subject that even a novice can appreciate, while the more difficult chapters will repay rereading and comparison with Hegel's own texts. Wallace shows the continuities with Kant, the Aristotelian elements, and explains the nature of Hegel's criticism of Kant in a most illuminating way. Wallace takes a view of Hegel that allows us to understand Hegel independently of the philosophical committments that other commentators often impose on him. There are so many books on Hegel, it is difficult to know what is of real value, but it is certain that Wallace stands at the very pinnacle of current Hegel studies.
