Course Content

This course will be concerned with G.W.F. Hegel`s most famous and influential work Phenomenology of Spirit. After a brief introduction to Hegel`s philosophy and its relation to Kantian philosophy, we will pay particular attention to Hegel`s conception of `phenomenological method`. We will trace how Hegel explores the development of consciousness from its most ordinary form as `spirit`. Finally, we will bring Hegel`s thought into dialogue with contemporary continental philosophies.
