Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
OK, basically all you really need to know about Hegel is that he was a genius that formulated a plan to take over the World with a 300 year time frame. He published his work and it was read and implemented by Johann Adam Weishaupt in his Illuminati Order. While there are a lot of other things Hegel is noted for the Hegelian Dialectic and the New World Order are the premier salient points for understanding what will follow on this website.
Hegelian dialectic, usually presented in a threefold manner, was stated by Heinrich Moritz Chalybäus as comprising three dialectical stages of development: a thesis, giving rise to its reaction, an antithesis, which contradicts or negates the thesis, and the tension between the two being resolved by means of a synthesis. Although this model is often named after Hegel, he himself never used that specific formulation. Hegel ascribed that terminology to Kant.
The entire spectrum of Western Society at times seems to hinge on some form of Hegelian dialectic, The Democrats vs the Republicans, the Conservatives vs the Liberals, The West vs The East, the Christians vs the Muslims, The Jews vs the Arabs, the Cowboys vs the Indians, the Redskins vs the Raiders and Pepsi vs Coke. It’s all a game where you are supposed to pick a side and then fight to the death to defend them.
August 27, 1770 – November 14, 1831) A German philosopher, and a major figure in German Idealism. His historicist and idealist account of reality revolutionized European philosophy and was an important precursor to Continental philosophy and Marxism.
Hegel developed a comprehensive philosophical framework, or “system”, of Absolute idealism to account in an integrated and developmental way for the relation of mind and nature, the subject and object of knowledge, psychology, the state, history, art, religion, and philosophy. In particular, he developed the concept that mind or spirit manifested itself in a set of contradictions and oppositions that it ultimately integrated and united, without eliminating either pole or reducing one to the other. Examples of such contradictions include those between nature and freedom, and between immanence and transcendence.
His influential conceptions are of speculative logic or “dialectic”, “absolute idealism”, “Spirit”, negativity, sublation (Aufhebung in German), the “Master/Slave” dialectic, “ethical life” and the importance of history. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hegel]
