"Education is the art of making people ethical" As the grandmaster Hegel himself said. And such will be the idea of this course as well.

This course offers a critical examination of the key concepts of truth, history and freedom in Hegel’s philosophy. Our study will include excerpts from the Science of Logic, the Lectures on the Philosophy of History, Outlines of a Philosophy of Right and Lectures on the Aesthetics.
Filip will lead the main 8 seminars of the course and our founder Johannes Niederhauser will teach an additional recap seminar halfway through.


This is the ultimate Hegel Masterclass on the Internet. So if you always wanted to study Hegel, this is the right course for you.

Hegel exercised enormous influence on 19th and 20th century thinkers, from Marx and Kierkegaard to Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty and Gadamer, and continues to this day with thinkers such as Brandom and McDowell. For anyone seeking to gain a better understanding of what is distinctive about Hegel’s methodology and thought, this course will offer a substantive introduction.

Hegel is a notoriously difficult philosopher—a philosopher’s philosopher—but like an old teacher once said, “If I can master Hegel, I can master anything!” A good portion of this course will train your ability to read, understand and communicate Hegel’s ideas, which will in turn hone your intellectual aptitude and make you a better philosopher.

"The ripest maturity, the highest stage, that anything can attain is the one at which its fall begins." Hegel


“The length of the journey has to be borne with, for every moment is necessary.”
