PHIL468 - HEGEL: HEGEL & ANALYTIC PHIL

Hegel's Metaphysics: The purpose of the course is to discuss the basic metaphysical assumptions of Hegel's philosophy and to inquire to what extent these assumptions guide his conception of a 'system'. The seminar will focus primarily on some of Hegel's early Jena writings, his Phenomenology of Spirit and on passages from different versions of Hegel's Logic. Topics that are dealt with include: (1) Hegel's conception of philosophy, (2) the development of his system, (3) the problem of an introduction to his system (Phenomenology of Spirit), (4) Hegel's criticism of traditional metaphysics, (5) his notion of a 'concept' (Begriff), his theory of the idea.
