The Philosophy Of History by Georg Hegel

The philosophy of history. THE PHILOSOPHY OF HISTORY. 1 II. Reflective History. 2 III. Philosophic History. 5 iii. The course of the World's History. i. It is otherwise with this last, which certainly seems to require an exposition or justification. The most general definition that can be given, is, that the Philosophy of History means nothing but the thoughtful consideration of it. Thought is, indeed. essential to humanity. It is this that distinguishes us from the brutes.

Parts III and IV only reproduced here; Translated: by Robert S. Hartman. III. The Idea of History and its Realization. The question of how Reason is determined in itself and what its relation is to the world coincides with the question, What is the ultimate purpose of the world? This question implies that the purpose is to be actualized and realized.

Much of the work is spent defining and characterizing Geist or spirit. Geist is similar to the culture of people, and is constantly reworking itself to keep up with the changes of society, while at the same time working to produce those changes through what Hegel called the cunning of reason

For Hegel, this development is marked by conflict and struggle, rather than smooth uninterrupted progress, and is manifested for the most part in political developments construed broadly, including world-historical events such as the French Revolution, in the significant actions of world-historical heroes such as Alexander the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte, and in the achievements of peoples and nations

An OCR copy should not be the first copy to come up on Amazon's site. I ordered this because I was ordering roughly 30 academic texts and did not have the time to pour through each description. There is absolutely no formatting, no table of contents, no index and the footnotes are muddled for the most part. Considering that this is already a difficult work in German, let alone in translation, it is impossible to decipher in the provided format. Worthless in an academic setting and should not be at the top of Amazon's list when you search for the work.

*This is not a review of the work itself, which is important for any understanding of Western philosophy.
Rather pedantic, but I am glad to be familiar with the original work -- or at least the translation.
Its difficult to review a book with so many different and new ideas. In parts I found the book downright racist. In other parts, I found it absolutely brilliant. In certain parts, I found it plain boring. In other parts, I just didn't know how to judge the arguments advanced because I had no other knowledge of the historical incidents being described.
But overall, I think its a fascinatingly ambitious book in the way that it tries to weave together nearly all of human history into a single narrative. One can very clearly see how historical materialism is only a step removed from Hegel. Aside from the rather long and abstract introduction (that lays down the Hegelian system of history) the rest of the book is actually quite easy to read (with the exceptional passages). Perhaps the best part of the book is his discussion of freedom and necessity and the connection of individual and collective interests as a stimulus to history. These parts, I thought, were absolutely brilliant.
This is a really interesting book to those looking to philosophical narrative of its history. The book has enough data to encourage the reader to look into a further research on each of its historical period.
I love Hegel and I love this book! I was tired of post-modernism so I thought I would read this.
Excellent read!
Not an easy read. Very detailed. I was impressed with Hegel' s knowledge about ancient history. Consider it a study book.
A fine deftly accessible compendium of Georg Hegel's work that enlightens rather than intimidates. An AudioBooks narration is also available on YT.
