I think most English speakers know of the foreword to the Phenomenology as the "Preface." It's not unusual to find people referring to "Hegel's celebrated 'Preface' to the Phenomenology" as a stand alone unit. I recommend changing "foreword" in this article to "Preface" throughout. Both Baillie and Miller, the two best known English translators of the Phenomenology, refer to the "Preface" rather than the "foreword."

Good point. I have changed the article according to your recomendation. I apreciate very much your help in making this article better readable for the native english speaker. Kai 15:31, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
