It makes me wonder of what the general view of public education throughout the phase of German idealism was
Weirdly enough, there are documents that record the actual THOUGHTS of the German Idealists. Crazy, I know, but if you're interested in learning about the attitudes of the GIs I'd start with those. I think--but don't quote me on this--that these documents are available in these, like, storehouses. I think they're called, I dunno, lieberries or something. I wonder if there are any near where you live?
Anyway, good luck on your search!
Both Fichte and Hegel believed in a civic education system, much like the one mandated by Frederik II, as this best brought the interests of the particular (citizens) into alignment with the universal (state). This is so obvious to not even need stating. You both need to develop a sense of humour.
OP would clearly be better helped by secondary sources for this, reading Hegel's lecture plans wouldn't tell you as much about the relationship between Fichtean ontopolitics and the American public school system as you seem to think it would. It just doesn't seem plausible to me, since 150 years have passed since he died and people have probably done research into this kind of thing.
I don't see what you mean with this last point, desu senpai
You don't actually know the first thing of what I think, you silly cunt. And if you had the answer up your sleeve this whole time I wonder what kept you from half-slipping it out until now.
I don't have an actual recommendation, I was correcting your assertion that simply reading Fichte or Hegel will actually give you insight into public opinion of German idealism when it was in Prussian vogue or the influence of German idealism on American education through the adoption of Prussian education systems in the US. Beyond what's contained in the video in the OP, I don't know much, but from what I've read of Hegel and Fichte, you aren't likely to get the kind of information OP really wants from them, and since he asks explicitly about what people thought of Hegel, it's clear that he's more interested (at this moment, at least) in what others thought of Hegel than in what Hegel thought. Fuck off.
