General introduction to Hegel:

Number in the title of the article = paragraph of the “Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts” by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

Numbers in text = page in the Suhrkamp edition.

The indented passages in the contributions are the “notes” added by Hegel to the printed edition.

The comments of “G.W.F. Hegel” are the handwritten notes from Hegel’s own copy (up to ca. § 180).

The comments of “Eduard Gans” are the “additions” compiled by the same.

The comments by Homeyer, Wannenmann, etc. are those from their lecture notes.

The English translation is by S W Dyde, 1896.
