...The query with which we're faced...is neither no matter if Hegel is true in what he says nor no matter if his interpreters are justified in what they are saying of him. particularly the query is one among checking out simply what Hegel does say and of choosing what influence which may have on our personal thinking....
...Why, then, the idea that of God ? the answer's to be present in the end result of the whole Hegelian method, The Philosophy of Absolute Spirit. basically within the gentle of absolute Spirit is whatever Hegel says intelligible....in Hegel s view, absolute Spirit is in reality to be pointed out with God and that, hence, provided that Hegel s suggestion of God is intelligible, will something Hegel says be intelligible.
