Hegel and the Idea of the Dialectic

For such a decisive figure in philosophy and culture more generally, the reception of Hegel’s thought is too often reduced to little more than a caricature. This course will seek to counter this with a detailed exploration of a range of his work. We will aim to assess their original message and contemporary relevance and seek to work through the stakes of any attempt to finally move beyond or past the ideas of one of the true giants of philosophy. (This was one of my earliest courses and not my best).
