Karen Blixen was born in Rungsted, Denmark, in 1885. After studying art at Copenhagen, Paris and Rome, she married her cousin, Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke, in 1914. Together they managed a coffee plantation in Kenya until they divorced in 1925. She continued on the farm until a collapse in the coffee market forced her back to Rungsted in 1931. Although she had written occasional contributions to Danish periodicals since 1905 (under the nom de plume of Osceola), her real debut took place in 1934 with the publication of Seven Gothic Tales, written in English under the pen name, Isak Dinesen. Out of Africa (1937) is an autobiographical account of the years she spent in Kenya. All of her subsequent books were published in both English and Danish, including Winter's Tales (1942) and The Angelic Avengers (1936). Among her other collections of stories are Last Tales (1957), Anecdotes of Destiny (1958), Shadows on the Grass (1960) and posthumously Ehrengard (1963). In the 1950s she was mentioned several times as a candidate to receive the Noble Prize in Literature. Baroness Blixen died in Rungsted in 1962. In 1991 her house was opened as The Karen Blixen Museum.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's Philosophy of Right is widely acknowledged as one of the most important texts in the history of moral and political philosophy. While exerting a profound influence on several major philosophical movements, the groundbreaking 1820 work continues to shape philosophical thought. Hegel's Philosophy of Right presents a collection of new essays by leading international philosophers and Hegel scholars who analyse and explore Hegel's key contributions in the areas of ethics, politics, and law. Contributions address issues that include ethics, the relationship of Hegelian ethics with contemporary debates in value theory, the so-called "empty formalism" objection that Hegel directs at Immanuel Kant's moral philosophy, Hegel's understanding of law, justice, and political issues that shed new light on Hegel's ideas of punishment, ethical life, and family. Scholarly and thought-provoking, Hegel's Philosophy of Right offers important new insights into our understanding of Hegel's seminal Philosophy of Right and the broader world of Hegelian philosophy. Thom Brooks is Reader in Political and Legal Philosophy at Newcastle University. He is editor and founder of the Journal of Moral Philosophy . His books include Hegel's Political Philosophy: A Systematic Reading of the Philosophy of Right (2007). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Ashby.
