Hegel Reading Group
We are a group dedicated to collectively reading the core works of the German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel (1770 – 1831). Our goal is to facilitate a better understanding of the often difficult contents of Hegel’s texts and to provide a forum for meaningful engagement between his thought and contemporary questions. Although we are primarily made up of postgraduate students working on Hegel, we happily welcome non-philosophers and beginners in Hegel’s philosophy to join us at any point. Term 1 and 2.

This term we will be working on the second part of Hegel's Science of Logic, the Doctrine of Essence. Please bring a copy of the book for the session. We will mainly use the Di Giovanni translation, but there are usually no problems if people bring other translations (Miller, etc.).

Time and location: Monday 14:00 (starting wk 2) in room S2.40
Contact: Filip Niklas at f.niklas (at)
