Half Hour Hegel: The Complete Phenomenology of Spirit

In this first video in the new series on G.W.F. Hegel's great early work, the Phenomenology of Spirit, Dr. Gregory B. Sadler discuss the form, nature, and aims of this new series, and then move immediately into reading and commenting on the very first paragraph of the text, from the Preface. In this video series, Dr. Gregory B. Sadler will be working through the entire Phenomenology, paragraph by paragraph -- for each one, first reading the paragraph, and then commenting on what Hegel is doing, referencing, discussing, etc. in that paragraph. This is a fairly substantial undertaking -- producing and releasing one or two 25-35 minute videos per week, we project this series will require at least three years of work on my part. The goal is ultimately to provide something like an online lecture course covering every part of the Phenomenology, leaving no portions out, as a resource for students, lifelong learners, and even interested instructors. Dr. Gregory B. Sadler will be using and referencing the A.V. Miller English-language translation of the Phenomenology, which is available here: http://amzn.to/1jDUI6w Gregory B. Sadler is the president and co-founder of ReasonIO. The content of this video is provided here as part of ReasonIO's mission of putting philosophy into practice -- making complex philosophical texts and thinkers accessible for students and lifelong learners.
