Hegel's Ladder, Volume 1
H. S. Harris
"Hegel's Ladder aspires to be...a 'literal commentary' on Die Phanomenologie des Geistes ...It was once the wide awake target of my thirty-year fight with Hegel to jot down an explanatory statement at the publication; and with its final touch I regard my very own 'working' occupation as concluded...The winning behavior of commentators...is based at the basic consensus of opinion that no matter what else it can be, Hegel's Phenomenology isn't the logical 'science' that he believed it was once. this is often the obtained view that i need to overthrow. but when i'm correct, then an acceptably non-stop chain of argument, paragraph via paragraph, should be discoverable within the text." -- from the Preface.

This program of Hegel's element to typical philosophy has the benefit of readability (T and F can nonetheless be.
