Excerpt
Excerpt: Translator?s Preface. In his preface, Hegel?s editor, Professor Eduard Gans, makes some interesting remarks upon the ?Philosophy of Right,? and informs us as to the way in which the matter of the book had been put together. He dates his preface May 29th, 1833, thirteen years, lacking one month, later than Hegel?s date for the completion of his own preface, and eighteen months after the philosopher?s death. Hegel had, it would appear, lived to see the outbreak of unusual opposition to his political conceptions, and so Dr. Gans begins: ?The wide-spread misunderstanding, which prevents the recognition of the real value of the present work, and stands in the way of its general acceptance, urges me, now that an enlarged edition of it has been prepared, to touch upon some things, which I would rather have left simply to increasing philosophic insight.? He goes on to give three reasons for placing great value upon this work of Hegel?s.
