This choice of lectures―originally compiled through Raymond Queneau and edited for its English-language translation through Allan Bloom―shows the depth of Kojève's learn and inspiration and the intensity of his perception into Hegel's Phenomenology. extra important―for Kojève was once in particular a thinker and never an ideologue―this profound and venturesome paintings on Hegel will reveal the readers to the thrill of getting to know a very good brain in all its strength and power.
