By Tom Rockmore
A revised reprint of the college of California Press variation of 1993.
In this attractive and obtainable creation to HegelÂ’s thought of data, Tom Rockmore brings jointly the philosopherÂ’s lifestyles, his suggestion, and his historic momentÂ—without, besides the fact that, lowering one to a different. Laying out the philosophical culture of German idealism, Rockmore concisely explicates the theories of Kant, Fichte, and Schelling, necessary to an knowing of HegelÂ’s proposal. He then explores HegelÂ’s formula of his personal place with regards to this practice and follows HegelÂ’s principles in the course of the competing interpretations of his successors. Even this present day, in response to Rockmore, HegelÂ’s approach continues to be an basically glossy notion of information, stronger to KantÂ’s severe philosophy and strangely suitable to our philosophical state of affairs.
RockmoreÂ’s remarkably lucid and succinct advent to HegelÂ’s inspiration, with its distinctively ancient process, will profit scholars of philosophy, highbrow heritage, politics, tradition, and society.

How can postcolonialism be productively used to advance migration studies in this ‘age of migration’ (Castles & Miller, 2009) and transnational mobility? In their commentary on postcolonial migrations, Mains et al. (2013) offer three suggestions in this regard (see Koh, 2015b for an elaborated discussion). The first is to stretch the spatial boundaries of the postcolonial. This means going beyond the usual dichotomy of ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’ (usually assumed to be at the national scale) but to also consider places within national boundaries where issues of power inequalities are equally relevant.

I also use ‘culture of migration’ to describe an established migration corridor linking specific origin and destination points. For example, the Malaysia-Singapore and Malaysia-UK migration flows (see Chap. 3) may have originally arose as a reaction to structural barriers in Malaysia, but migration flows in these migration corridors become perpetuated through socio-cultural beliefs and practices. Finally, my use of ‘culture of migration’ does not refer to common migrant attributes, as in Hardy’s (2005) uses of it.
