This book shows how an understanding of the nature and role of insanity in Hegel's writing provides intriguing new points of access to many of the central themes of his larger philosophic project. Berthold-Bond situates Hegel's theory of madness within the history of psychiatric practice during the great reform period at the turn of the eighteenth century, and shows how Hegel developed a middle path between the stridently opposed camps of "empirical" and "romantic" medicine, and of "somatic" and "psychical" practitioners. A key point of the book is to show that Hegel does not conceive of madness and health as strictly opposing states, but as kindred phenomena sharing many of the same underlying mental structures and strategies, so that the ontologies of insanity and rationality involve a mutually illuminating, mirroring relation. Hegel's theory is tested against the critiques of the institution of psychiatry and the very concept of madness by such influential twentieth-century authors as Michel Foucault and Thomas Szasz, and defended as offering a genuinely reconciling position in the contemporary debate between the "social labeling" and "medical" models of mental illness.

The first English-language collection devoted to Hegel’s Philosophy of Subjective Spirit. Although Hegel considered his philosophy of subjective spirit to be of particular importance, it has been the focus of little present-day scholarship, particularly in English. Recent editorial work associated with the publication of a new edition of Hegel’s Gesammelte Werke and the discovery and translation of a transcript of one of his lecture courses on the topic, however, have set the stage for a fresh encounter with this fascinating and wide-ranging component of his thought. Taking up questions central to the philosophy of mind and body and to the philosophy of psychology, the Philosophy of Subjective Spirit includes discussions of feelings and emotions, consciousness, habit and free will, and rationality—as well as madness, dreams, and the paranormal. Situating Hegel’s philosophy on the topic in relation to the rest of his work, to his contemporaries, and to current philosophy of mind and psychology, this volume demonstrates its richness as a focus of study and paves the way for a new direction in Hegel scholarship. “…cursory remarks cannot do justice to the high level of scholarship and intellectual intricacy in these essays. This anthology shows how Hegel’s neglected philosophy of subjective spirit is extremely important not only for Hegel scholars but also to philosophers interested in exploring different philosophical approaches to what have come to be regarded as the standard philosophical problems.” — Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Hegel's lectures have had as great a historical impact as the works he himself published. Important elements of his system are elaborated only in the lectures, especially those given in Berlin during the last decade of his life. The original editors conflated materials from different sources and dates, obscuring the development and logic of Hegel's thought. The Hegel Lectures series is based on a selection of extant and recently discovered transcripts and manuscripts. The original lecture series are reconstructed so that the structure of Hegel's argument can be followed. Each volume presents an accurate new translation accompanied by an editorial introduction and annotations on the text, which make possible the identification of Hegel's many allusions and sources. Lectures on the Philosophy of Spirit 1827-8 Robert Williams provides the first full view of Hegel's Philosophy of Subjective Spirit in his translation of this recently discovered manuscript. Hegel's lectures of 1827 go far beyond the previously published Encyclopedia outline, and provide a new introduction to the Philosophy of Spirit. Since they come from a single source, they are not editorial constructions like the previously published supplemental materials (Zusaetze). The new material provides the only explicit grounding of the concept of right presupposed by the Philosophy of Right, grounds Hegel's account of the virtues in love and mutual recognition, gives further insight into Hegel's theory of madness/dementia, and elaborates Hegel's difficult account of the role of mechanical memory in transcendental deduction of objectivity. The edition should stimulate and open up interest in Hegel's Philosophy of Spirit, a neglected area in Hegel scholarship, but one to which Hegel himself attached special importance and significance.

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), language: English, abstract: Madness plays an important role in "Wide Sargasso Sea". Therefore, this term paper has the goal of giving a good and detailed depiction of the different ways of madness as both, Antoinette and Rochester, become mad - though extremely different. Hegel's theory of madness will be taken into account in order to portray the protagonist's individual journey into madness and the differences in their self-development. As this psychoanalytical theory represents a good insight in a human being's mind and its constituents, it appears to be an adequate theory for a detailed analysis of Antoinette and Rochester's mental illness. After having explained Hegel’s theory of madness, there will be an overview about the occurrences in Antoinette and Rochester’s lives that are significant for their self-development, i.e. their way down into madness. It is relevant to display those happenings since the number of painful experiences both have to endure is enormous and crucial for becoming mad. The last chapter will be the analysis of their individual madness in terms of Hegel. As a consequence, it can be depicted not only how they influenced each other but also how other characters in the novel influenced them. Moreover, the analysis may show how extremely different they try to cope with their painful experiences. To conclude, at the end of this paper, readers will have alternative views on both, Antoinette and Rochester. Whether one is in favour of Rochester or Antoinette, will then be one’s personal choice.

This book offers the first genuinely systematic treatment of Hegel’s eschatology in the literature. It is an investigation into Hegel’s project to demonstrate the ultimate unity of thought and being (consciousness and reality, self and world). The author traces the project through Hegel’s epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of history. The grand synthesis creates a basic tension, an ambivalence, that reaches its most acute formulation in Hegel’s eschatological language of a final completion or fulfillment of history. This conflicts with his dialectic and Heracletian metaphysics of becoming. Berthold-Bond concludes that a substantially new approach to Hegel’s eschatology is needed.
