Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

G. W. F. Hegel (1770–1831) was a German philosopher who worked on problems of epistemology, psychology, religion and aesthetics. His works followed and influenced German idealism that was growing at his time.

Hegel’s ideas remain very controversial among Philosophers, with notable philosophers expressing interest for and against his views.

Hegel’s works are among the most difficult to read in philosophy, as they rely on significantly advanced knowledge of previous terminology used by other philosophers, as well as an understanding of epistemology and metaphysics up to his point in time. Like many other philosophical works in German (particularly those of Heidegger), Hegel’s works are often confused in translation to other languages, such as English.
