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 is my concluding entry on Hegel's life, drawing from Rosenkranz's Hegels Leben (1844), the first biography of Hegel. I describe Hegel's final words on politics and falling out with Edouard Gans, his last sudden illness and death and the life of his sister.
