This contradiction and the removal of it will become more definite if , to begin with, we call to mind the abstract determinations of knowledge and of truth as they are found in consciousness. • DVD Hegel Werke, Deutschsprachiger In either case we employ a means which immediately brings about the very opposite of its own end; or, rather, the absurdity lies in making use of any means at all. • Comment and Interpretation of Hegel For this view is scepticism, which always sees in the result only pure nothingness, and abstracts from the fact that this nothing is determinate, is the nothing of that out of which it comes as a result. Should both, when thus compared, not correspond, consciousness seems bound to alter its knowledge, in order to make it fit the object.

The differences between Hegel and Marx are important. not as abstract pure moments, but as they are for consciousness, or as consciousness itself appears in its relation to them, and in virtue of which they are moments of the whole, are embodiments or modes of consciousness. A tripartite ontology is proposed which allows the key concepts of Subjectivity and “shape of spirit” (Gestalt) to be grounded in practical social psychology. Nonetheless, Hegel’s philosophy contains the idea of activity and, moreover, an activity which develops through a stage of alienation and estrangement. The Phenomenology of Spirit (German: Phänomenologie des Geistes) (1807) is Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's most widely discussed philosophical work; its German title can be translated as either The Phenomenology of Spirit or The Phenomenology of Mind. Consequently we do not require to bring standards with us, nor to apply our fancies and thoughts in the inquire; and just by our leaving these aside we are enabled to treat and discuss the subject as it actually is in itself and for itself, as it is in its complete reality. In this regard, it is a matter of indifference whether we consider that it (science) is the phenomenon because it makes its appearance alongside another kind of knowledge, or call that other untrue knowledge its process of appearing. The progress towards this goal consequently is without a halt, and at no earlier stage is satisfaction to be found. an idea not of an object, but solely of its knowledge of that first object. • Preface to “Philosophy of Right” • “Theses on Feuerbach” Or, again, if knowledge is not an instrument which we actively employ, but a kind of passive medium through which the light of the truth reaches us, then here, too, we do not receive it as it is in itself, but as it is through and in this medium. Thereby there enters into its process a moment of being per se, or of being for us, which is not expressly presented to that consciousness which is in the grip of experience itself. For what happens there is not what is usually understood by doubting, a jostling against this or that supposed truth, the outcome of which is again a disappearance in due course of the doubt and a return to the former truth, so that at the end the matter is taken as it was before. • Diagrams Illustrating Hegel’s System Spirit A. • Foreword to “Hegel’s Logic” by J N Findlay Consequently, then, what this real per se is for consciousness is truth: which, however, means that this is the essential reality, or the object which consciousness has. But from this being for another we distinguish being in itself or per se; what is related to knowledge is likewise distinguished from it, and posited as also existing outside this relation; the aspect of being per se or in itself is called Truth. Or, again, if the examination of knowledge, which we represent as a medium, makes us acquainted with the law of its refraction, it is likewise useless to eliminate this refraction from the result. Φ 79. The object, it is true, appears only to be in such wise for consciousness as consciousness knows it. Or let it take its stand as a form of sentimentality which assures us it finds everything good in its kind, and this assurance likewise will suffer violence at the hands of reason, which finds something not good just because and in so far as it is a kind. In consciousness there is one element for an other, or, in general, consciousness implicates the specific character of the moment of knowledge. Φ 74. Φ 83. But in the alteration of the knowledge, the object itself also, in point of fact, is altered; for the knowledge which existed was essentially a knowledge of the object; with change in the knowledge, the object also becomes different, since it belonged essentially to this knowledge. where science first appears on the scene, neither science nor any sort of standard has justified itself as the essence or ultimate reality; and without this no examination seems able to be instituted. • Contents of “Hegel’s Shorter Logic” Matter is everything. Consciousness knows something; this something is the essence or is per se. the resolve, in science, not to deliver itself over to the thoughts of others on their mere authority, but to examine everything for itself, and only follow its own conviction, or, still better, to produce everything itself and hold only its own act for true. We have here, however, the same sort of circumstance, again, of which we spoke a short time ago when dealing with the relation of this exposition to scepticism, viz. But it usually seems that we learn by experience the untruth of our first notion by appealing to some other object which we may happen to find casually and externally; so that, in general, what we have is merely the bare and simple apprehension of what is in and for itself. In pressing forward to its true form of existence, consciousness will come to a point at which it lays aside its semblance of being hampered with what is foreign to it, with what is only for it and exists as an other; it will reach a position where appearance becomes identified with essence, where, in consequence, its exposition coincides with just this very point, this very stage of the science proper of mind. The completeness of the forms of unreal consciousness will be brought about precisely through the necessity of the advance and the necessity of their connection with one another. Φ 85. The series of shapes, which consciousness traverses on this road, is rather the detailed history of the process of training and educating consciousness itself up to the level of science. Robert Brandom’s A Spirit of Trust is a culmination of an unlikely attempt by recent academic philosophers to bring Hegel together with American pragmatism and analytic philosophy. It is clear, of course, that both of these processes are the same. Marx finds it in Hegel, albeit raised to the level of purely philosophical reflection which has lost touch with the real basis of history in material labour. The terminus is at that point where knowledge is no longer compelled to go beyond itself, where it finds its own self, and the notion corresponds to the object and the object to the notion. In this treatment of the course of experience, there is an element in virtue of which it does not seem to be in agreement with what is ordinarily understood by experience. In this connection, there is a moment in the process just mentioned which should be brought into more decided prominence, and by which a new light is cast on the scientific aspect of the following exposition. Marx After Marxism encourages readers to understand Karl Marx in new ways, unencumbered by political Marxist interpretations that have long dominated the discussions of both Marxists and non-Marxists.This volume gives a broad and accessible account of Marx's philosophy and emphasizes his relationship to Hegel. INTRODUCTION. Certainly one of the most famous chapters of the Phenomenology of Spirit is the one on “lordship and bondage” or master and slave (“Knechtschaft” in German is not necessarily slavery, but Hegel’s bondsman has no rights and no contract with his master).Marxists (not Marx himself) understood the reversal of the master-slave relation as one of the central messages of the book. Consciousness, therefore, suffers this violence at its own hands; it destroys its own limited satisfaction. For this reason we shall here undertake the exposition of knowledge as a phenomenon. Φ 76. This is explicated through a necessary self-origination and dissolution of "the various shapes of spirit as stations on the way through which spirit becomes pure knowledge". For a trick is what knowledge in such a case would be, since by all its busy toil and trouble it gives itself the air of doing something quite different from bringing about a relation that is merely immediate, and so a waste of time to establish. This translation is a collaborative effort, the accomplishment of decades of work, by Peter Fuss (Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Missouri-St. Louis) and John Dobbins (independent scholar). Still less can science appeal to the presages of a better, which are to be found present in untrue knowledge and are there pointing the way towards science; for it would, on the one hand, be appealing again in the same way to a merely existent fact; and, on the other, it would be appealing to itself, to the way in which it exists in untrue knowledge, i.e. • Classical German Philosophy, • “Socialism: Utopian & Scientific”, II As the foregoing has been stated, provisionally and in general, concerning the manner and the necessity Of the process of the inquiry, it may also be of further service to make some observations regarding the method of carrying this out. Such a one-sided view of it is what the natural consciousness generally adopts; and a knowledge, which makes this one-sidedness its essence, is one of those shapes assumed by incomplete consciousness which falls into the course of the inquiry itself and will come before us there. It is widely considered a key element in Hegel's philosophical system, and has heavily influenced many subsequent philosophers. No philosopher has been more influential in the modern age than Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831). Hegel observed that this was needed for connectivity, something that Marx opposed vehemently. After his father’s death, he received an inheritance that allowed him to dedicate himself fully to the acade… The Phenomenology of Spirit by Hegel, published in 1807, is based on a precious philosophical intuition: consciousness is not an completed institution, it is constructed, transformed to become other than itself. Many scholars have considered Karl Marx a left-wing Hegelian philosopher. Φ 73. In the section on “Self-Consciousness” in which the Master/Slave dialectic is found, we find an abstract, universal consciousness bifurcated and faced with another consciousness just like itself. Others consider "totality" merely another version of Hegel's "spirit," and thus condemn it as a crippling, secret idealism. • Hegel’s Logic – purchase book from MIA for $25. • Philosophy of Right (epub), • Visualiation of the Science of Logic • Time Line for Hegel's Legacy He was educated at the Royal Highschool in Stuttgart from 1777-88 and steeped in both the classics and the literature of the European Enlightenment. Hence consciousness comes to find that what formerly to it was the essence is not what is per se, or what was per se was only per se for consciousness. • Biography of Hegel Along with the particular there is at the same time set up the “beyond”, were this only, as in spatial intuition, beside what is limited. • Biography of Hegel The theoretical and the practical spirit still fall in the sphere of the subjective spirit in general; this knowledge and will are still formal. • “Getting to know Hegel” by Andy Blunden This dialectic process which consciousness executes on itself — on its knowledge as well as on its object — in the sense that out of it the new and true object arises, is precisely, what is termed Experience. But, here,. This conclusion comes from the fact that the Absolute alone is true or that the True is alone absolute, It may be set aside by making the distinction that a know ledge which does not indeed know the Absolute as science wants to do, is none the less true too; and that knowledge in general, though it may possibly be incapable of grasping the Absolute, can still be capable of truth of another kind. Dismissing the liberal conception of self-willing individuals who freely form governments, Hegel argues that freedom is only realizable in the context of the state and in abiding by its laws. Φ 86. • Hegel’s Science of Philosophy (incl. But just because consciousness has, in general, knowledge of an object, there is already present the distinction that the inherent nature, what the object is in itself, is one thing to consciousness, while knowledge, or the being of the object for consciousness, is another moment.

Scepticism, directed to the whole compass of phenomenal consciousness, on the contrary, makes mind for the first time qualified to test what truth is; since it brings about a despair regarding what are called natural views, thoughts, and opinions, which it is matter of indifference to call personal or belonging to others, and with which the consciousness, that proceeds straight away to criticize and test, is still filled and hampered, thus being, as a matter of fact, incapable of what it wants to undertake.

Φ 78. Hegel could never explain how this Absolute spirit coincided with the material world through which it is reflected. For science cannot simply reject a form of knowledge which is not true, and treat this as a common view of things, and then assure us that itself is an entirely different kind of knowledge, and holds the other to be of no account at all; nor can it appeal to the fact that in this other there are presages of a better. • 1841 When once, on the other hand, the result is apprehended, as it truly is, as determinate negation, a new form has thereby immediately arisen; and in the negation the transition is made by which the progress through the complete succession of forms comes about of itself.

Consciousness does not seem able to get, so to say, behind it as it is, not for consciousness, but in itself, and consequently seems also unable to test knowledge by it. Alex Steinberg has previously taught the philosophy of Hegel and Marx at the New Space, the Brecht Forum and most recently the Marxist Education Project. Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit (first published in 1807) is a work in German Idealism that purports to tell the story of the development of the human spirit through a history of consciousness. And, finally, when it grasps this its own essence, it will connote the nature of absolute knowledge itself. A third new translation of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit is in preparation for publication by the University of Notre Dame Press. The content, however, of what we see arising, exists for it, and we lay hold of and comprehend merely its formal character, i.e. The scepticism which ends with the abstraction “nothing” or “emptiness” can advance from this not a step farther, but must wait and see whether there is possibly anything new offered, and what that is — in order to cast it into the same abysmal void. Moreover, he was an avid admirer of Immanuel Kant. This is due to his disagreement with Hegel over the view that the driving force in human life is based on the academic competency or religion. Hegel emphasizes the concept of Idea, but Marx talks about matter. Hegel is a German philosopher who built a vast system ordering all knowledge of his time, after Kant‘s attempt to do it. § 17Religious holds that the world is not abandoned to chance, but that a Providence controls it. Marxism, according to many of these theorists, cannot do without an injection of Hegelian philosophy in order to revivify it. Nothing, however, is only, in fact, the true result, when taken as the nothing of what it comes from; it is thus itself a determinate nothing, and has a content. Suppose we call knowledge the notion, and the essence or truth “being” or the object, then the examination consists in seeing whether the notion corresponds with the object. But we shall see as we proceed that random talk like this leads in the long run to a confused distinction between the absolute truth and a truth of some other sort, and that “absolute”, “knowledge”, and so on, are words which presuppose a meaning that has first to be got at. Consciousness furnishes its own criterion in itself, and the inquiry will thereby be a comparison of itself with its own self ; for the distinction, just made, falls inside itself. • More ... • Discussion Hegel’s most mature statement of political philosophy, the Elements of the Philosophy of Right is an excoriating critique of social contract theory and liberal individualism. Φ 87. If we take away again from a definitely formed thing that which the instrument has done in the shaping of it, then the thing (in this case the Absolute) stands before us once more just as it was previous to all this trouble, which, as we now see, was superfluous. • “The Philosophical Propadeutic” Hegel’s lecture notes, 1808-1811, • Hegel’s Critics – a collection of 60 critiques of Hegel from 1841 - 2001 Φ 75. But the nature of the object which we are examining surmounts this separation, or semblance of separation, and presupposition. Since, then, in the case of its object consciousness finds its knowledge not corresponding with this object, the object likewise fails to hold out; or the standard for examining is altered when that, whose criterion this standard was to be, does not hold its ground in the course of the examination; and the examination is not only an examination of knowledge, but also of the criterion used in the process. With suchlike useless ideas and expressions about knowledge, as an instrument to take hold of the Absolute, or as a medium through which we have a glimpse of truth, and so on (relations to which all these ideas of a knowledge which is divided from the Absolute and an Absolute divided from knowledge in the last resort lead), we need not concern ourselves. • Introduction to Site Consciousness, however, is to itself its own notion; thereby it immediately transcends what is limited, and, since this latter belongs to it, consciousness transcends its own self. Or, again, fear of the truth may conceal itself from itself and others behind the pretext that precisely burning zeal for the very truth makes it so difficult, nay impossible, to find any other truth except that of which alone vanity is capable — that of being ever so much cleverer than any ideas, which one gets from oneself or others, could make possible.

But it can find no rest. For if knowledge is the instrument by which to get possession of absolute Reality, the suggestion immediately occurs that the application of an instrument to anything does not leave it as it is for itself, but rather entails in the process, and has in view, a moulding and alteration of it. Hegel was born in Stuttgart in 1770, the son of an official in the government of the Duke of Württemberg. to a bad form of its own existence, to its appearance, rather than to its real and true nature (an und für sich). • Marxists Internet Archive. 273-87. Thus in what consciousness inside itself declares to be the essence or truth we have the standard which itself sets up, and by which we are to measure its knowledge. The last object appears at first sight to be merely the reflection of consciousness into itself, i.e. Hegel’s philosophy has had a great influence on much of what has happened in the world since his time (1770-1831) and is crucial to understanding much of modern social thought and philosophy as well as to understanding Marxism and the socialist tradition in its varied aspects. This new object contains the nothingness of the first; the new object is the experience concerning that first object. Nor need we trouble about the evasive pretexts which create the incapacity of science out of the presupposition of such relations, in order at once to be rid of the toil of science, and to assume the air of serious and zealous effort about it.

If now our inquiry deals with the truth of knowledge, it appears that we are inquiring what knowledge is in itself. Thus, Hegel’s philosophy left the backdoor open for a return to a form of dualism, and it is this backdoor that is now being used in academia to distort Hegel’s true achievements. Natural consciousness will prove itself to be only knowledge in principle or not real knowledge. • To Join Hegel-Marx Discussion Group The most vexing and devastating Hegel legend is that everything is thought in "thesis, antithesis, and synthesis."

What really lies in these determinations does not further concern us here; for since the object of our inquiry is phenomenal knowledge., its determinations are also taken up, in the first instance, as they are immediately offered to us. What Marx and the other Young Hegelians took from Hegel was a method and language that allowed them to challenge tradition and the existing order: a focus on history and a stress on flux, change, contradiction, movement, process, and so forth. Since, however, it immediately takes itself to be the real and genuine knowledge, this pathway has a negative significance for it; what is a realization of the notion of knowledge means for it rather the ruin and overthrow of itself; for on this road it loses its own truth.

Instead of being troubled with giving answers to all these, they may be straightway rejected as adventitious and arbitrary ideas; and the use which is here made of words like “absolute”,"knowledge”, as also “objective” and “subjective”, and innumerable others, whose meaning is assumed to be familiar to everyone, might well be regarded as so much deception. The transition from the first object and the knowledge of it to the other object, in regard to which we say we have had experience, was so stated that the knowledge of the first object, the existence for consciousness of the first ens per se, is itself to be the second object. This object, however, is also the per se, the inherent reality, for consciousness. • Terry Pinkard’s translation of The Phenomenology For consciousness is, on the one hand, consciousness of the object, on the other, consciousness of itself; consciousness of what to it is true, and consciousness of its knowledge of that truth. That which is confined to a life of nature is unable of itself to go beyond its immediate existence; but by something other than itself it is forced beyond that; and to be thus wrenched out of its setting is its death. More especially it takes for granted that the Absolute stands on one side, and that knowledge on the other side, by itself and cut off from the Absolute, is still something real; in other words, that knowledge, which, by being outside the Absolute, is certainly also outside truth, is nevertheless true — a position which, while calling itself fear of error, makes itself known rather as fear of the truth. With better right, on the contrary, we might spare ourselves the trouble of talking any notice at all of such ideas and ways of talking which would have the effect of warding off science altogether; for they make a mere empty show of knowledge which at once vanishes when science comes on the scene. On the view above given, however, the new object is seen to have come about by a transformation or conversion of consciousness itself. § 16 That Nature is unchangeably subordinate to universal laws, appears nowise strange to us. Marx's critical reformulation of Hegel's philosophy of history consists in the elimination of the fictitious subject of world history, the so called 'world spirit', and in the prolongation of the dialectical process of historical development into the future. As a matter of fact, this fear presupposes something, indeed a great deal, as truth, and supports its scruples and consequences on what should itself be examined beforehand to see whether it is truth. • Help/Resources Some varieties of Marxist philosophy are strongly influenced by Hegel, emphasizing totality and even teleology: for example, the work of Georg Lukács, whose influence extends to contemporary thinkers like Fredric Jameson.

The experience which consciousness has concerning itself can, by its essential principle, embrace nothing less than the entire system of consciousness, the whole realm of the truth of mind, and in such wise that the moments of truth are set forth in the specific and peculiar character they here possess — i.e. The Phenomenology of Spirit, or the adventure of consciousness. Conducted by Russell Dale. That resolve presents this mental development (Bildung) in the simple form of an intended purpose, as immediately finished and complete, as having taken place; this pathway, on the other hand, is, as opposed to this abstract intention, or untruth, the actual carrying out of that process of development. One barren assurance, however, is of just as much value as another. But science, in the very fact that it comes on the scene, is itself a phenomenon; its “coming on the scene” is not yet itself carried out in all the length and breadth of its truth. If we stick to a system of opinion and prejudice resting on the authority of others, or upon personal conviction, the one differs from the other merely in the conceit which animates the latter. there is the moment of truth.
