Wednesday 17 January 2018 | 2pm-4pm |10 sessions Tutor: Richard Norman | Canterbury campus | £105 Hegel’s Phenomenology of Mind, published in 1807, is one of the great works of Western philosophy. In it Hegel claims to survey the whole course of human experience, from the most basic consciousness of sense impressions to comprehensive systems of religion and philosophy. In tracing this progress he examines experiences of freedom and servitude, conflict and the fear of death, alienation, morality, tragedy, revolution, terrorism, and the death of God. The book has been a major influence on Marxism and existentialism, and on both modern theology and modern atheism. It is written in a style which is difficult to read. In this course I shall try to make it intelligible and accessible.
