New Meetup: Hegel: Phenomenology of Spirit VI

From: Andras
Sent on: Friday, May 7, 2010 8:48 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Boston Philosophy Meetup Group!

What: Hegel: Phenomenology of Spirit VI

When: Thursday, May 20,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Uno Chicago Grill
22 JFK St
Cambridge, MA 02138

We will continue with part A of the Spirit chapter of Hegel's Phenomenology (pages[masked] of the Miller translation/edition, ISBN-13:[masked]).

Hegel's Phenomenology is infamously hard climbing, probably the K2 of philosophy, and certainly one of the most difficult books ever written. For help, we suggest Peter Singer's Hegel: A Very Short Introduction. Harder going, but perhaps more rewarding, is Alexandre Koj?ve's Introduction to the Reading of Hegel.

As well, Hegel has his own terminology, which he usually fails to define. But have no fear. Simply Google "Hegel Glossary" and choose one or several, and if you can't find a term in your first choice check some others, but keep in mind that none are Hegel defining Hegel, unless they quote him directly. M. Inwood's A Hegel Dictionary, 356 pages, ISBN-13:[masked], might be worth acquiring.

If anyone is interested in a short (9 page), humorous, but also serious, contemporary discussion of the Phenomenology, you can download "Untimely Review of Hegel's ... Read more Phenomenology of Spirit" by Robert Brandom from this page http://www.pitt.edu/~....
