  • Eduard Gans
Part of the International Archives of the History of Ideas / Archives Internationales d’Histoire des Idées book series (ARCH, volume 143)


Gans posthumously edited Hegel’s lecture notes for courses on the philosophy of history and published them in book form as The Philosophy of History (1837). Karl Hegel significantly revised the text for a second edition (1840). Sibree translated the work in 1857, employing the Karl Hegel text. Sibree’s work has been continuously in print in a variety of English and American editions ever since. Sibree’s translation is arguably the most historically influential and successful translation of any of Hegel’s works.
