Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The purpose of this module is to provide an introduction to Hegel's philosophy through a close reading of the Science of Logic. Hegel's philosophy has exercised an enormous influence on 19th and 20th century thinkers from Marx and Kierkegaard to Sartre and Gadamer, and the Logic is perhaps the single most important text for anyone seeking to understand what is distinctive about Hegel's thought.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of this module students will have developed an understanding of, and an ability to assess, the principal arguments presented by Hegel in his Logic.
