Sample text

This introductory chapter provides the historical and thematic groundwork to start reading Hegel’s own texts. The next chapter, Chapter 2, is concerned with all of Hegel’s writings prior to the publication of his first major work, the Phenomenology of Spirit (1807). In his early writings, Hegel is primarily concerned with the question of how to overcome the tensions and oppositions of modern life, and he considers at various points whether love, religion, or reason, will provide the best sort of reconciliation.

In The Life of Jesus, Hegel argues (anachronistically) that the rational core of what Jesus taught is Kantian ethics: true virtue is acquired by acting freely and rationally, by autonomously subjecting oneself to the demands of moral law. But, Hegel argues, in the early stages of Christianity, this rational core was lost, and supplanted by a form of authoritarianism. This corruption of Jesus’ proto-Kantianism was due largely to historical conditions, to the limitations on what most people at the time could understand, and how this shaped those early efforts to spread the religion.

Hegel starts to bring these ideas together in his unpublished fragment on Love, which describes the sort of unity that can exist between two people who love each other, an analogue for the unity of subject and object. He then modifies and develops this framework in Natural Law and the System of Ethical Life, hoping to accommodate more general epistemological, ethical, and political concerns. It is here that Hegel begins speaking of mutual intersubjective recognition, ‘spirit,’ and ‘ethical life,’ ideas that will be central to the Phenomenology as well as his mature thought.
