This study of the history of German mind of the 19th century became a classic. It tries to capture the destiny of the Hegelian thought: the transmutation and reversal of the philosophy of the absolute mind by Marx and Kierkegaard, the change of the historical thought into the request for eternity by Nietzsche. The first edition was published in 1941 in New York.
The book Von Hegel zu Nietzsche. Der revolutionäre Bruch im Denken des 19. Jahrhunderts (title of the English edition: From Hegel to Nietzsche) by Karl Löwith has been translated to Romanian (excerpt) by Maria-Magdalena Anghelescu under the title De la Hegel la Nietzsche. Ruptura revoluţionară în gândirea secolului al nouăsprezecelea, published by Editura Tact, Cluj-Napoca.
