Wenn die Philosophie ihr Grau in Grau malt, dann ist eine Gestalt des Lebens alt geworden, und mit Grau in Grau läßt sie sich nicht verjüngen, sondern nur erkennen; die Eule der Minerva beginnt erst mit der einbrechenden Dämmerung ihren Flug.

List of Contents

G.W.F. Hegel: Werke II contains the complete edition of Hegel's works published after his death in 1831 by an "Association of his Friends":

Hegel, G. W. F. Werke. Vollständige Ausgabe durch einen Verein von Freunden des Verewigten: Philipp Marheineke et al. Berlin: Duncker und Humblot, 1832-1845.

This edition has been the foundation of Hegel research during the last century and a half, although it is now being surpassed by the new (but still incomplete) Hegel-Archiv edition.

The “Association of his Friends” edition has been reprinted four times in slightly revised forms: twice in the nineteenth century; then on the 100th anniversary of Hegel’s death in the so-called Jubiläumsausgabe (Jubilee Edition); and in a paperback edition in 1970 published by Suhrkamp Verlag:

Hegel, G. W. F. Werke in zwanzig Bänden. Theorie-Werkausgabe. Frankfurt: Suhrkamp, 1970.

InteLex's G.W.F. Hegel: Werke II electronic edition contains the complete Theorie-Werkausgabe, and volume and page numbers in the reference lines of each paragraph in the electronic edition refer to the volume and page numbers contained in the Theorie-Werkausgabe edition.

This second enhanced edition contains:

  • Frühe Schriften (Werke I contained selections only)
  • Jenaer Schriften (Werke I contained selections only)
  • Phänomenologie des Geistes
  • Nürnberger Schriften (not included in Werke I)
  • Wissenschaft der Logik I, II
  • Heidelberger Schriften (not included in Werke I)
  • Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts
  • Enzyklopädie der philosophischen Wissenschaften I , II, III
  • Berliner Schriften (not included in Werke I)
  • Vorlesungen über die Philosophie der Geschichte
  • Vorlesungen über die Ästhetik I, II, III
  • Vorlesungen über die Philosophie der Religion I, II
  • Vorlesungen über die Geschichte der Philosophie I, II, III

Let me tell you that the members of our faculty are very satisfied of the performances of the 4 titles previously bought (Descartes: Fichte; Hegel; Nietzsche.) I hope we will be able to order soon other similar resources.
