Hegel's Philosophy of the Historical Religions
Bart Labuschagne, Timo Slootweg
BRILL, Apr 19, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 284 pages
No topic ever disquieted Hegel more than that of Religion. It haunted him, and he wrestled with it all during his life: from his brilliant youthful writings on spirit of Judaism and Christianity, up until the Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion of 1831. Of the Determinate Religions, Hegel wrote many profound and exhilarating philosophical interpretations. This volume brings together a collection of critical essays that discuss Hegel s relation to each of these historical Religions, including the Islam, and (of course) the revealed religion of Christianity (Catholicism and Protestantism). All chapters aim to shed light on the intriguing development of Hegel s conception of the dialectic of Religion. Taken together, they develop a comprehensive view of Hegel s philosophy of the historical Religions. His grandiose and provocative perceptions and thought-scapes enhance the appetite for the - much needed - philosophical appreciation of the phenomenon of religion.
