Minor in German Philosophy - Seminar on Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit I GERM 4201   Seminar on Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit I
The Phenomenology of Spirit, published in 1807, was Hegel's first major work. He intended to write an introduction to philosophy by demonstrating the necessity of the advance from the most immediate form of knowledge to absolute knowledge. To achieve this he had to write the Phenomenology as an introduction to his own philosophy.
