Hegel, Today!


   The Hegel's unique thought is, I think, not grasped properly even now. Accordingly his ideas are mostly accepted to be irrational, and sometimes ridiculous. However, after structural linguistics, the advent of the concept 'metalanguage,' and especially 'intersubjectivity' of W. Hiromatsu, we have got a fine location to look at Hegelianism.

   I intended to explain it here in those today's philosophical terminology as rationally and lucidly as possible. Hegel, after all, was not a mystic, but an authentic philosopher, who still has the right to be paid serious attention by sensible intellectuals. The following bunch of e-mails were my posts to a mailing-list, "Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel Discussion Group." They were revised for readers in general (i.e., some titles were renamed , the names of correspondents were replaced with symbols, the redundant parts were cut, etc.), but hold the original post style for the sake of readability; it would then be much easier to approach the difficult philosopher.
