Robert B. Pippin is the current Evelyn Stefansson Nef Distinguished Service Professor in the Committee on Social Thought and the Chair of the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago, having previously taught at the University of California, San Diego. Arguably more than anyone else in the Anglo-American philosophical world, Robert Pippin is responsible for the very considerable rise of interest in Hegel's thought that has taken place since the publication of his pathbreaking book Hegel's Idealism (1989). For Pippin, Hegel is not simply one of the great figures of the philosophical past; rather, from the first he has found in Hegel an exemplary thinker for the present age, one whose writings have first to be understood in the context of problems inherited from Kant and his immediate successors, but which then can be seen to bear closely on problems in the philosophy of mind, art, action and Continental and English-language traditions. More recently, Pippin has ranged widely across the 19th and 20th centuries, with magisterial essays on figures such as Nietzsche, Heidegger, Blumenberg, Gadamer and Strauss, as well as a highly original book on the novelist Henry James. He is currently putting the final editorial touches to a book-length study of Hegel's theory of agency. He was the 2001 winner of the Mellon Foundation Distinguished Achievement Award. As mentioned, he has authored a number of books, including: Kant’s Theory of Form: An Essay on the Critique of Pure Reason, 1982; Modernism as a Philosophical Problem: On the Dissatisfactions of European High Culture, 1991; Idealism as Modernism: Hegelian Variations, 1997; Henry James and Modern Moral Life, 2000; The Persistence of Subjectivity: On the Kantian Aftermath, 2005; Hegel's Practical Philosophy: Rational Agency as Ethical Life, 2008. He has been a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences since 2007.

Daniel Roche is a Professor at the Collège de France. In his career as teacher and scholar, Daniel Roche has been one of the greatest forces in the renewal of historical studies over the last thirty years. As a specialist on urban societies, his work has focused upon three lines of inquiry: understanding the link between urban milieu and both scholarly and popular forms of culture; analyzing the birth of societies of consumption taking both material and intellectual culture as their starting point; and, finally, demonstrating mobility in traditional societies.
