"Stanley Rosen's undertaking in The Idea of Hegel's 'Science of Logic' is an important and unique contribution to philosophical literature. It closes an important circle to his earlier and much-remembered work, Nihilism, a book that analyzed the problem announced by its title but was not as ambitious as to suggest a solution-it is precisely this ambition to which this newest book returns." -- Omri Boehm, New School
"Reflection on Hegel as one of the supreme minds of the philosophic tradition has always been central to the work of Stanley Rosen, but with this study of Hegel's Science of Logic he has produced his definitive account of this formidable treatise, which exhibits the categorical structure of all being as it develops the conceptual fractures of Western philosophy. Lucid, thorough, and historically informed, this study is not merely a commentary but an effort to understand Hegel by rethinking the problems that animate his speculative logic. In exemplary fashion it shows how one can think about philosophy with Hegel's assistance, and it deserves to be considered Rosen's magnum opus." -- Richard Velkley, Tulane University
"In this latest book, Stanley Rosen offers lucid commentary on the work that is at once the most abstruse and the most central to Hegel's thought: the Science of Logic, in which Hegel wanted to build a coherent whole out of whatever was true in previous thought. Rosen, who has taught and written on almost every philosopher, can assess the value of Hegel's claims with perfect competence. Beyond historical pursuits, however, he brings out the relevance of Hegel's logics for our present-day problems by showing that most contemporary solutions correspond to moments that Hegel has shown to be merely provisional and which degenerate when isolated. Hegel's full articulation of rationality is a powerful antidote to the rampant nihilism of our time." -- Remi Brague, Universite Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne and University of Munich
