He is the author of Philosophy without Foundations: Rethinking Hegel, also published by SUNY Press, and editor of Hegel on Economics and Freedom. The program provides students with a flexible, interdisciplinary context within which to pursue their studies, built on connections among specific courses and areas of interest.
