I'm reading the Phenomenology and I guess I'm not entirely sure exactly what is being said.

I'm up to the chapter on force; so I'm pretty early in the book. I'm using The Logic of Desire as a secondary, but I'd like a second source as well that maybe spells things out for me.

Like what exactly is he saying about absolute truth in the introduction and early chapters. Is he saying that we can know the thing in itself by studying its appearance, or is he saying that there is no such thing as a thing in itself at all and that we can only know appearances.

Did you get the lobotomy first, like you're supposed to?

Make sure to huff gasoline for 20 minutes prior to each reading session

Look up H.S. Harris's "Hegel's Ladder", which is a comprehensive two volume study of the entire Phenomenology. It goes paragraph by paragraph, and it spells out pretty anything you could spell out in every passage. You can find it on Bookzz, though, as a heads up, it's a .djvu and not a .pdf.

Don't just start with the Phenomonology, you're not going to get anywhere. Read an introduction first. A Very Short Introduction to Hegel by Peter Singer is good.

He's already reading it, and couple chapters in, and using a respectable secondary introductory work. Why would he need Peter Singer's shitty short introduction?
>>
>>684365
i find it easier to read complicated philosophical works that way

this guy is having trouble, so maybe he should try reading something else beforehand?

hi milo

He's having trouble because *Hegel is hard*. If he wants to understand Hegel, there's literally no other way than by having to work. A book from the "very short introduction" series won't help anyone who's reading through a primary text anyway; it's too short to comment on anything relevant.

A bigger study will help, but that means having to go through the text in piecemeal fashion, which is fine, just much more time consuming than one might prefer.
