Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel bibliography
Hegel's aesthetics, or philosophy of art, forms part of the extraordinarily rich German aesthetic tradition that stretches from J. Adorno's Aesthetic Theory Hegel's philosophy of art is a wide ranging account of beauty in art, the historical development of art, and the individual arts of architecture, sculpture, painting, music and poetry. It contains distinctive and influential analyses of Egyptian art, Greek sculpture, and ancient and modern tragedy, and is regarded by many as one of the greatest aesthetic theories to have been produced since Aristotle's Poetics. His philosophy of art proper, however, forms part of his philosophy rather than phenomenology of spirit. The Phenomenology can be regarded as the introduction to Hegel's philosophical system.
It presents world history in terms of the Hegelian philosophy in order to show that history follows the dictates of reason and that the natural progress of history is due to the outworking of absolute spirit. The text was originally published in by the editor Eduard Gans , six years after Hegel's death, utilizing Hegel's own lecture notes as well as those found that were written by his students.

Hegel is not really all that interested in history itself at least, he says he s not particularly interested in history per se the one damn thing after another bit of history but rather what history can tell us about what he calls the world spirit This is a complicated idea, and one I m not entirely sure I have fully understood Still, it might help to sort of personalise this spirit In one way I guess this is what Hegel intends He wants you to think that there is a single god that is using human history as a way to either manifest itself, or perhaps better, to come to a full realisation of its own actual essence The spirit does this by literally using people and the kinds of societies they develop to realise or understand itself a kind of reflection through alienation idea To Hegel the highest realisation of this spirit something he is often and rightly criticised is the Ge.

In this article I explore how philosophical thinking about God, reason, humanity and history has shaped ideas of Europe, focusing on Hegel. For Hegel, Europe is the civilization that, by way of Christianity, has advanced the spirit of freedom which originated in Greece. Hegel is a Eurocentrist whose work indicates how Eurocentrism as a broader discourse has shaped received conceptions of Europe. As such, one contribution that contemporary philosophers can make is to reconstruct this history of ideas and consider what it has meant for, and where it has left, the idea of Europe. Initially, Glendinning sketches the key contours of this history as follows. For the same reason the historical trajectory has a single goal: universal peace, freedom and happiness, which are to come about through the realization of reason.
