>>7326959 Fuck PoS. Try Philosophy of History. It gives the real Hegel, not the early one who wanted to a man of lettres. There's a reason why humanist like their PoS more than anything else, since they are pussies who can't handle the actual Hegel who has no illusions.
>>7327001 Someone doesn't understand the place of the PoS within the System.
>>7326959 It's really cool. I had to read it for college last year, and I was initially intimidated by it, just because of the reputation that thing has, but I found it incredibly rich in ideas and arguments, and a very compelling account of both human consciousness generally and human spirit throughout history. I'm not sure I *agree* with him, but Hegel's fucking cool as shit.
If you look in the archives, there should be a MEGA file collecting a bunch of works on Hegel with a focus on commentaries on the PoS. If you're too intimidated by the book itself, there are some very accessible commentaries that also don't simplify his thought.
>>7327414 For college we read the Introduction, the first two sections of Consciousness, all of Self-Consciousness, all of Spirit and Absolute Knowing (so we skipped Reason and Religion). I've read the rest of it on my own time.
And the warosu.org archive stores /lit/'s stuff; the particular thread is here:
>>7328649 >being illiterate and talking about philosophy you know nothing about
marx's project emerged out of a materialist but constructive critique of hegel. the image macro was a caricature of the anons the quoted post was lampooning. get fucked, you useless, incognizant swine.
>>7328669 It is clearly you who cannot comprehend, as never once did I claim Marx was not heavily influenced by Hegel. All I was saying is that agreeing with Hegel does not automatically make one a Marxist, my evidense being many other philosphers have been influenced by Hegel.
Reminder that Schoppy was insincere regarding Hegel A young philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer, requested the right to do his habilitation in Berlin and to be allowed to give lectures there; he also requested, strangely enough, that if it were possible, his lectures should be scheduled at exactly the same time as Hegel's lectures. The dean of the faculty, August Boeckh, passed along Schopenhauer's petition to the rest of the faculty, noting with displeasure the "no small arrogance and extraordinary vanity" contained in Schopenhauer's request. The rest of the faculty also took umbrage with Schopenhauer's "arrogance," but Hegel apparently had nothing against it, and he agreed to set a date for Schopenhauer's defense (March 23, r 82o) . Schopenhauer read a test-lecture on the traditional notions of the four causes, and in the ensuing discussion, Hegel asked him to clarify what he meant when he said that "animal functions" account for an animal's behavior; Hegel thought that in one of the examples Schopenhauer had given, he was confusing motives (reasons for action) with causal factors such as pulse, blood circulation, and the like. There ensued a bit of a to-do between Hegel and Schopenhauer on the point, with the zoologist Martin H. K. Lichtenstein cutting in to defend Schopenhauer's use of the term "animal function................Although Hegel's point was not about the use of terms but about the distinction between reasons and causes, he prudently decided not to press the point any further and gave Schopenhauer a passing grade, thus clearing the way for him to begin his teaching career (fully aware of Schopenhauer's peculiar request to schedule his classes so as to challenge him for students). As he had requested, Schopenhauer was permitted to hold his lectures at the same time as Hegel's, and when hardly anyone showed up for them, he had to leave Berlin for several years in some disgrace.
>>7328902 What amazes about the PoS is how accurate the cycle of Culture (Immediate Spirit, Alienation in culture and the subsequent bringing back of it through pure intellect/faith, and moral world-view) still continues to happen over and over again.
I think if Hegel saw what happened in the 20th and 21th centuries he would probably be way less optimistic about we achieving absolute knowledge.
