Philosophy for busy people. Listen to a succinct account of the philosophy of Hegel in just one hour. With Hegel philosophy became very difficult indeed – even the great man himself conceded that ‘only one man understands me, and even he does not.’ His dialectical method produced the most grandiose metaphysical system known to humanity, and included absolutely everything, its most vital element being the dialectic of the thesis, antithesis and synthesis.

Narrator gasping for breath

2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-04-18

Poorly recorded, with the narrator probably too close to the microphone. His gasping for breath between sentences is unpleasant and totally distracting. The same is true of some other audiobooks in this series.
