I just can't understand this guy, he's so hard to read, but he also looks very interesting, just tell me what he said plase !
his facial resemblance to hitler is striking
Do you want to understand him or do you just want to sound out the words he put together? If the prior then you have to start from the beginning - he also read Buddhism and hermetic texts. If you're fine with merely sounding out words then Hume and Kant are fine. But you have to realize that Hume and Kant are end bosses in themselves. Here ya go -> https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y8_RRaZW5X3xwztjZ4p0XeRplqebYwpmuNNpaN_TkgM/pub
I want to understand him, it's like if I knew that he has important things to say to me. I'm reading "reason in history" right now and I know that this guy and his philosophy are made for me, but I can't fucking understand him.
>im not interesting
No you aren't. But if you don't understand buddhism you won't understand Hegel.
>What's the problem with my punctuation ?
It is grossly incorrect for English and marks you out as one of French, Vietnamese or Stupid. Perhaps all three.
If a philosopher can't be understood by any simpleton than he's a hack. Truth should be as plain and simple as the sound of the rain. The same way, any philosopher that is "lost" in translation in such a manner that his work can no longer be fully understood is also a hack. The sound of rain needs no translation.
how can one post contain so many shiggy diggs?
>le super deep dialectical man can never be summarized heh
Holy shit you autists
Bros I'm about to blow your fucking minds check it
Use WORDS that DESCRIBE the most IMPORTANT concepts in Hegel's philosophy in a couple of lines that give a concise, but obviously not systematic, understanding of the general tenor of Hegel's thought. Wow! Doctors hate him!
>So the problem of freedom, for Hegel and those who follow him, is not freedom from external constraint, but the establishment of the social conditions under which the life you lead seems to be the one you have determined.
Hegel the good little rationalist despises life so much that he tries to ''understand'' why >muh society makes us do what we do, in order to change society for fulfilling, at last, his wishes.
>But if you don't understand buddhism you won't understand Hegel
Don't listen to this guy, just read the book. If there are words or concepts you don't understand look them up. The elitism regarding philosophy is retarded considering content rich history is so much harder to read (no, not gay ass biographies on Napoleon). Literally read the fucking book; you are never going to understand Hegel better by reading some guy who isn't Hegel instead.
Yeah, philosophy is basically wisdom and common sense mixed together. Retards make things more complicated than they have to be. There is no plot in philosophy, just thoughts. It is actually much easier to read than many genres.
History is the process of dialectics: the synthesizing of contradictory elements into a superior whole. All of human history, from art to religion to philosophy, is the dialectical approach to an absolute: God.
but you already knew that you're just a meme loving fuck
Let's go on sci and ask which of the 4 humours is the most superior for planning geocentric movements into space!
Because that's the standard of your and OP's shit posting!
Oops, the science of auspices says today is a bad day to shitpost, and it is always today.
>The elitism regarding philosophy is retarded considering content rich history is so much harder to read
No, "history" is hard to read because it involves gestalt reading of a wide variety of archival and primary sources.
Reading a narrative monograph is easy as fuck.
Heideggar severely misunderstood the buddhist. His positions and the positions of the many "enlightened" of the west touch parts of Buddhism. Pretty sure Hume was one of the first ones to get a depth of Buddhism.
thesis: julius caesar was not a rabbit
antithesis: julius caesar was a rabbit
synthesis: julius caesar was 50% rabbit
How does this prove dialectics will give me magical truth finding powers?
1) Stop worrying about the order you should read shit in. Whether of the author in question, or of his predecessors in philosophy and literature. Just dive in already. You want to know how Plato and Aristotle and etc. are relevant to Hegel? He has a lecture course on the history of philosophy-just read that.
2) A MEGA of various intros, philosophical dictionaries, lectures, and shit, pretty accessible. Start with "The Ladder of Desire", if you must, and then follow up with the Rosen book. If you have to start with anything, read the biography.
>guide to books to read is as long as a book
Reading this thread, I realize that 4chan is the internet's ancient Athens. You have a bunch of nameless philosophers arguing about philosophy, religion, politics, history, and everything else. Then, you have a bunch of nameless hooligans who unironically live the philosophy of Diogenes, at least on the internet, and shitpost without end.
Two thousand years from now, the discourse here will be counted among the legendary examples of philosophical discussion.
Traditional forum sites, where you have to register for a name and get upvotes, are the thesis. 4chan is the antithesis of those websites. What is the synthesis, /his/?
I know that the "thesis-antithesis-synthesis" meme had been popular previously, but where the hell are people getting it from today? The Wikipedia page for both Hegel and the Thesis-etc. triad both specify that he critiques it and that dialectic doesn't work that way.
According to the guy in this video (in minute 33:30) the said structure was popularized by Marx in his book "The Poverty of Philosophy" where he attributes it to Hegel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvFu6ak_SGk
I mean, I know that much, I just don't get how so many people who've likely done some cursory reading on Hegel from Wikipedia could keep repeating a mistake that's not really made anymore in the scholarship.
Very good video, btw.
Don't worry you can just wait for the green meme brothers to misunderstand everything he ever said in crash course philosophy. Who else is excited to watch then meme another subject matter into the depths of hell and rape it in front of satan himself? Fuck those guys, they do more harm than good
