The philosophy of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) is a landmark interpretation of the intertwinings of cognition, secular history and piety. This blog examines Hegelian ideas and their international reception, including in Scotland starting with James Hutchison Stirling's The Secret of Hegel (1865) and the works of Edward Caird. It reflects the contributor's own studies, which are partly biographical, and also features related news in a twitter feed.
This post covers my reading of Hegel's period at Nürnberg, including his rectorship at the Aegidiengymnasium and marriage, drawn again from Book II of Karl Rosenkranz's Hegels Leben (1844). I will reserve comments on the Science of Logic for a separate post.
