For me, the most difficult of all the Germans, although probably also the most rewarding
A few questions for you folks:
1) Did Hegel really believe, as Kojeve claims, that history was (is), in effect, over, since reason, Geist and ultimately human freedom reach their apex in the realisation that they are the product of history.
2) Are his ideas just simple concepts made difficult through the use of obscure language?
3) Are his ideas not just a rip-off of Epicurean dialectics and Kantian teleology?
4) Is he cooler than Nietzsche nowadays?
It's not as if the centipede would have a functioning digestive system.
I could glue a couple of pieces of cardboard as wings onto my car, but I wouldn't call it a functioning flying car even if it would be able to "fly" 50 meters if I drove it at full speed off a cliff.
