    > Hegel est à l’origine de tout ce qui s’est fait de grand en philosophie depuis un siècle, – par exemple du marxisme, de Nietzsche, de la phénoménologie et de l’existentialisme allemand, de la psychanalyse ; – il inaugure la tentative pour explorer l’irrationnel et l’intégrer à une raison élargie qui reste la tâche de notre siècle.

      >Hegel is at the origin of everything great that has been done in philosophy over the last century – for example, Marxism, Nietzsche, phenomenology and German existentialism, psychoanalysis; – it inaugurates the attempt to explore the irrational and integrate it into a broader reason which remains the task of our century

      what on earth does Hegel have to do with Nietzsche and psychoanalysis? Marxism isn't even philosophy. It's just Marx spiting Hegel by making economics determine the world.

      Holy frick he cites literally all the israeli sources of intellectual social cancer that plagued the west for the past 200 years : Marxshttism, gibberish german philosophy, bullshit psychoanalysis. Basically the matrix of feminism and modern homosexualery.

    Because he's fascinating and this paragraph is something I fell in love with:
    >“The analysis of an idea, as it used to be carried out, was, in fact, nothing else than ridding it of the form in which it had become familiar. To break an idea up into its original elements is to return to its moments, which at least do not have the form of the given idea, but rather constitute the immediate property of the self. This analysis, to be sure, only arrives at thoughts which are themselves familiar, fixed, and inert determinations. But what is thus separated and non-actual is an essential moment ; for i t is only because the concrete does divide itself, and make itself into something non-actual, that it is self-moving. The activity of dissolution is the power and work of the Understanding, the most astonishing and mightiest of powers, or rather the absolute power. The circle that remains self-enclosed and, like substance, holds its moments together, is an immediate relationship, one therefore which has nothing astonishing about it. But that an accident as such, detached from what circumscribes it, what is bound and is actual only in its context with others, should attain an existence of its own and a separate freedom— this is the tremendous power of the negative ; it is the energy of thought, of the pure 'I'.Death, if that is what we want to call this non-actuality, is of all things the most dreadful, and to hold fast what is dead requires the greatest strength. Lacking strength, Beauty hates the Understanding for asking of her what it cannot do.

      >But the life of Spirit is not the life that shrinks from death and keeps itself untouched by devastation, but rather the life that endures it and maintains itself in it. It wins its truth only when, in utter dismemberment, it finds itself. It is this power, not as something positive, which closes its eyes to the negative, as when we say of something that it is nothing or is false, and then, having done with it, turn away and pass on to something else ; on the contrary, Spirit is this power only by looking the negative in the face, and tarrying with it. This tarrying with the negative is the magical power that converts it into being. This power is identical with what we earlier called the Subject, which by giving determinateness an existence in its own element supersedes abstract immediacy, i .e. the immediacy which barely is, and thus is authentic substance : that being or immediacy whose mediation is not outside of it but which is this mediation itself. “

        So theres something in the void (nothing) because it knows it itself can't be nothing?

            I don't get the point of your post, even as a joke. The anon I initially replied to seems Hegel is going to help him flagellate himself further.

            it's simple, if there is some demon that is "a part of you" that wants to murder children according to you then it is essential to you, according to you. after all, it is a part of you.

    The homosexual reformulated induction into dialectic logic which makes philosophy pseuds cream in their panties because they believe that by following his cryptic ramblings, they can escape hume and eventually kant's abyss of meaninglessness.

      Simply for the sake of the argument, couldn't one say you don't understand Hegel and that you're invoking the obscurtanism argument to escape this fact?

        You could say that and in turn, I would ask you to differentiate btn dialectical logic- his biggest contribution and induction.

    I had to for a philosophy course, along with Kant and Kierkegaard, though the course itself was more concerned with their respective theologies.

    I didn't understand it then, though I had literally no prior theological knowledge and hadn't read the Bible (still haven't), and I still don't.

    My father forced Hegel upon me in the front seat of a 1980 Toyota Corolla station wagon. I was 14.

    As a result of this I force read Hegel.

    >Hegel, installed from above, by the powers that be, as the certified Great Philosopher, was a flat-headed, insipid, nauseating, illiterate charlatan, who reached the pinnacle of audacity in scribbling together and dishing up the craziest mystifying nonsense. This nonsense has been noisily proclaimed as immortal wisdom by mercenary followers and readily accepted as such by all fools, who thus joined into as perfect a chorus of admiration as had ever been heard before. The extensive field of spiritual influence with which Hegel was furnished by those in power has enabled him to achieve the intellectual corruption of a whole generation.

    I have not yet, but I will because he is historically important and a supposed big brains of philosophy. Thus, I must see whether I am filtered by him, of a necessity.

    ANALytics un-atomizing themselves via a revival of intredast in him was peculiarly remarkable and warranted investigation. And leaving any of the Germans to 'dialectical' materialists and the French is simply inexcusable.
