POLI 7907 Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The class will undertake a close reading of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. The course will focus especially on the political and religious dimensions on the Phenomenology and how the relation between these two fundamental human interests shapes the desire of consciousness to be at home in the world. Ultimately, we will try to understand Hegel's audacious claim to have brought philosophy “nearer to the form of science, to where it can lay aside the title ‘love of knowing’ and be actual knowing.”
