Abstract: 

Among British playwrights, George Bernard Shaw is a dramatist who envisages the hermeneutics of history with a m ore challenging perspective w hich approximates him to a modern o utlook. In this regard, he manages to attune his philosophy of history (best exposed in a 1923 p lay by the name of Saint Joan) with the idea of F. W. Hegel, the nineteenth - c entury German th inker, and his unique approach to the speculations on the philosophy of history. The attempt of the present study is to read Saint Joan through the looking glass of Hegel’s two eminent works, The Philosophy of Right and Philosophy of History and if possible, to excruciate the assimilations between the two thinkers and their involvement in the notion of history.
