Hegel published a critical review of Johann George Hamann, a retrospective of the life and works of one of Germanys most enigmatic and challenging thinkers and writers. While Hegels review had enjoyed a central place in Hamann studies since its appearance, Hegel on Hamann is the first English translation of the important work.

Philosophers, theologians, and literary critics welcome Andersons stunning translation since Hamann is gaining renewed attention, not only as a key figure of German intellectual history, but also as an early forerunner of postmodern thought. Relationships between Enlightenment, Counter Enlightenment, and Idealism come to the fore as Hegel reflects on Hamanns critiques of his contemporaries Immanuel Kant, Moses Mendelssohn, J. G. Herder, and F. H. Jacobi. Hegel on Hamann also includes an introduction to Hegels review, as well as an essay on the role of friendship in Hamanns life, in Hegels thought, and in German intellectual culture more broadly.

Rounding out the volume are its extensive annotations and bibliography, which facilitate further study of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century philosophy in English and German. This book is essential both for readers of Hegel or Hamann and for those interested in the history of German thought, the philosophy of religion, language and hermeneutics, or friendship as a philosophical category.
