No topic ever disquieted Hegel more than that of Religion. It haunted him, and he wrestled with it all during his life: from his brilliant youthful writings on spirit of Judaism and Christianity, up until the Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion of 1831. Of the ‘Determinate Religions’, Hegel wrote many profound and exhilarating philosophical interpretations. This volume brings together a collection of critical essays that discuss Hegel’s relation to each of these historical Religions, including the Islam, and (of course) the ‘revealed’ religion of Christianity (Catholicism and Protestantism). All chapters aim to shed light on the intriguing development of Hegel’s conception of the dialectic of Religion. Taken together, they develop a comprehensive view of Hegel’s philosophy of the historical Religions. His grandiose and provocative perceptions and ‘thought-scapes’ enhance the appetite for the - much needed - philosophical appreciation of the phenomenon of religion.

Based on their critical analysis of Kant's "Critique of Judgment", the authors of this book show from different perspectives in what way the Kantian concept of the sublime is still a main stream of inspiration for contemporary thinking.

This work identifies Kant’s doctrine of inner sense as a central element within the ‘architectonic of pure reason’ of the first Critique, exposes its variant construals, and considers the implications of its problematicity for Kant’s theoretical philosophy most generally.

This book shows that German Idealism can partipate in the contemporary debate on education: it is not only helpful in raising relevant questions, but can also be transformed into positions which can deal with the pluriformity that characterizes contemporary society.
