Hegel Courses online

Announcement on the upcoming season of Hegel classes on wiziq.


Hi, Robbert Veen here,

I have been teaching Hegel on the internet for a while now, at www.wiziq.com. On this site I intend to continue doing so, making my work on Hegel more available.

If you want to know me a bit better, I also got a personal blog at WordPress.com.

Some of my texts on hegel are available at http://www.scribd.com, e.g. this one is about Slavoj Zizek and Hegel.

As you can see, the site is still under construction, but I hope to build it up over the next two weeks. So please return and take a look.

In the mean time, every friday evening at 8 PM (European time) I will lecture on Hegel at http://www.wiziq.com, starting from friday, april 23d.An introductory class will be held at friday 16th. Get information here.

Check it out!
