I’ve been practicing making video’s again. See the result here:
A new video about our program on HegelCourses.com
How To Really Study Hegel
This Friday, June 11th, at 7 PM GMT – Lecture #3 in the Basic Hegel series on the Philosophy of Spirit: Introducing the philosophy of Religion.
This is the classlink:
Introducing the Philosophy of Religion
Here is the first lecture in the Basic Hegel series. This lecture deals with the basics of Hegel’s Logic.
The video’s can also be seen on YouTube on my channel.
It is obvious, however, that the history of Art did not stop with the Romantic Art that Hegel understood to be the ultimate Art form of his age. There is an impressive and complex history of Art after Hegel that in many ways conflicts with the two basic principles of Art – representation and self-expression – that Hegel used in his lectures on Aesthetics.
Within the system of philosophy of Hegel the concept of the “fine arts” takes a prominent place. Art in general, according to Hegel, is an expression of the absolute in the mode of representation or perception. Again Hegel tries to understand the thing by looking at its essential history.
We had our first session in the new BH-series: Basic Hegel.
For those of you who have missed it, I wanted to make the recording available. I’m not sure whether you can already download the recording, but you might view it on http://www.wiziq.com using the link here: www.wiziq.com. That was an option to be included later in the development of the site.
So this could be another way to do it. I am hosting that file on www.4shared.com. You can download it from there. It’s a big file, 22 MB even though it is zipped. It runs immediately and will give you the full recording, audio and visual.
Now that recording is not edited, so you might want to skip around a little to get to the good bits.
The link is found here: BH-series class 1 dialectics.exe
Please tell me if this works and what you think of the format, the file download and the session itself.
Bye for now.
And don’t forget the Friday session about the Philosophy of Spirit at 7 PM GMT.
See you then.
What is Hegel’s philosophy ultimately about? My answer to that question involves a reading of the structure of Hegel’s philosophy as a whole.
1. The philosophic science of right has as its object the idea of right, i.e.,
the conception of right and the realization of the conception.
Hegel’s social philosophy does not consider the social life in its fullest sense, but only in so far as it is expressed in social institutions or more specifically in institutions of right. It is after all an exercise in the realm of the objective Spirit – i.e. the sphere of reality that the human free will gives itself.
