Hegel: From Pure Life to the Philosophy of History

Francesco Valagussa


This paper focuses on Hegel’s Philosophy of History. From the relevance of his Theologische Jugendschriften, and throughout the analysis of the Phänomenologie des Geistes, I endeavor to highlight the importance of the Wissenschaft der Logik in the construction of a permanent point of view from which to investigate and examine the development of history. Following Marcuse’s interpretation of the role of phenomenology and logic in the construction of Hegel’s system, I suggest that the identity between essence and reflection could be considered a significant “behaviour” or “conduct” of every being, understood as the relation of each and every entity with itself.

Keywords: Philosophy of History, life, concept, Hegel, Marcuse
