    • I am currently reading three books, Hegel's Logic (translated by Wallace), Weiss's Hegel: the Essential Writings, which provides extracts from Hegel with a commentary and this one, the Prolegomena by the self-same Wallace. All of them are pretty tough, but I am coming out of the end of this rather macabre experience with what I think is a good idea of what Hegel is about. The Prolegomena is remarkably lucid, particularly in the early chapters. Wallace takes the reader on a tour of the philosophe [...]
