What is Hegel's freedom?

 If you cling to life, you'll lose it. If you're ready to lose life, you'll gain it. A bit christiany, wouldn't you say? :))

A capacity for freedom is a natural feature.  However, the concept of freedom changes through times. 

Human thought is responsive to actual reality. So history  can be seen as the development of ideas about freedom.

History is the progress and consciousness for freedom.

I'm free because I can act on my desires. Or better yet, I'm free because I give up on them.

It becomes a freedom of the pure self. But it becomes too abstract and you cant commit to any activity.

No history without society

You need a middle ground mediated by society, so that you reflect your desires in society.

Hegel looks at each civilization and the concept of freedom that it embodies.

The Reformation seen as  inner spiritual freedom, inner fate, not through external authority.


There's a codependent relation between state and individual. Most of our desires are the result of the world we live in (We don't 'need' Pepsi, but you learn to need it.)

I can't craft my own identity without the others around me. A metaphisycally bankrupt idea.

Types of histories

Original history - is done by the person at the time happening. The likes of Herodotus and Thucydides.

Reflective history - is like a narrative of the past from the present which also want to draw a moral lesson from it.

Philosophical history - there is more to history than dates and sad stories of war. There's progress. Hegel wants to see progress.

The end of history - is about a conceptual closure (regressive move, going backwards, dystopian world, Handmaiden tale vibes).

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
