The question of how far DeweyGCOs thought is indebted to Hegel has long been a conundrum for philosophers. This book shows that, far from repudiating Hegel, DeweyGCOs entire pragmatic philosophy is premised on a GCGBPphilosophy of spiritGC[yen] inspired by HegelGCOs project. Two essays by Shook and Good defending this radical viewpoint are joined by the definitive text of DeweyGCOs 1897 Lecture at the University of Chicago on HegelGCOs Philosophy of Spirit. Previously cited by scholars only from the archival manuscript, this edited Lecture is now available to fully expose the basic concern shared by Hegel and Dewey for the full and free development of the individual in the social context. DeweyGCOs and HegelGCOs philosophies are at the center of modern philosophyGCOs hopes for advancing human freedom.
