HEGEL FOR COMMUNISTS : Reading the Phenomenology of Spirit

+ Attending
+ RSVP!

"If there should ever be time for such work again, I should very much like to make accessible to the ordinary human intelligence -- in two or three printer's sheets -- what is rational in the method which Hegel discovered but at the same time enveloped in mysticism ...." -- Marx to Engels, January 14, 1858

Following upon our eighteen-month study & excavation of Spinoza's Ethics, we will delve together into the first great work of Hegel's genius -- the Phenomenology of Spirit. Adopting the read-aloud method we used with Spinoza, we'll begin with a close study of the Phenomenology's famous Preface and go from there.

Throughout our reading together we will be guided by the question : what is today useful in the thought of Hegel for the theory and practice of radical emancipatory social change ? Where, in the twenty-first century, is a Hegel for communists ? All are welcome to join us ; no previous familiarity with Hegel or any other philosophy is required.
