Hegel's Shorter Logic:
An Introduction and Commentary

  by John Grier Hibben and Eric v.d. Luft

Since its publication in 1902, John Grier Hibben's classic work
on Hegel's Encyclopedia Logic has been one of the clearest, most
illuminating, most helpful, and most popular expositions of this rich and        
difficult text. Nevertheless, its language has needed to be modernized,
its interpretations have needed to be revised and updated in view of
recent Hegel scholarship, and its findings have needed to be related
to a wider context in the history of philosophy. Writing as Hibben's
co-author, Eric v.d. Luft has done all this and more, adding two
chapters and an annotated bibliography, expanding the glossary,
providing exact citations, keying the commentary directly to
Hegel's section numbers, supplying illustrations and examples,
and strengthening the arguments. The result is an excellent
supplementary text for 21st-century students and Hegel scholars.
