The title of Dirk Hartmann’s seven-volume work alludes to the outstanding work of G.F.W. Hegel "Neue Enzyclopädie der philosophischen Wissenschaften im Grundrisse” from 1817. Since Hegel, no philosopher has attempted to give a comprehensive account of the main philosophical problems and their systematic interconnections. Two hundred years after Hegel’s “Enzyclopädie”, Dirk Hartmann now has undertaken the enormous challenge to again work out such a systematic and coherent survey from a present point of view - counteracting the increased fragmentation and specialization which philosophy and science underwent in the course of the 20th century.
