Sample text

It does not wonder whether it was a mistake to seek greater rational control over events and for this purpose to invent theories that oversimplify human nature. Of course, as we have seen even in this quick summary, there are many modern thinkers, and they usually disagree with one another’s diagnoses and remedies. And there were thinkers who wanted to 48 A Student’s Guide to Political Philosophy return, with modifications, to the ancients, such as Shaftesbury (1621-1683), Lessing (1729-1781), and Goethe (1749-1832).

Both fact and history have the nonpartisan advantage always sought by modernity: they cannot be argued with. Yet somehow, despite the assurance of all the experts that argument is pointless, we continue to argue. G. W. F. Hegel (17701831) distinguished mere fact from history, or from what he called World History. He was the master of the philosophy of history. Rather than let fact silence reason, he tried to infuse reason into fact; he saw the “march of Reason” in the facts of World History. World History, he tried to show, developed in “dialectical” stages until the Rational State was perfected—which by good chance (so I say) turned out to be the very state of Prussia in which Hegel was living.

After graduation, he served as a tutor to families in Bern and Frankfurt, until 1801, when he took up a university post at Jena. In 1807 he published the Phenomenology of Spirit, but Napoleon’s invading troops closed the university, and he was forced briefly to find employment editing a newspaper in Bamberg. Then, from 1808 until 1816, Hegel served as headmaster of the “Gymnasium” in Nuremberg, and in 1818 he was named to the chair of philosophy in the University of Berlin. There he lectured until his death during an outbreak of cholera.
