For over fifty years, Hegel interpreters have rejected the previous trust that Hegel used thesis-antithesis-synthesis dialectics. during this incisive research of Hegel's philosophy, Leonard F. Wheat indicates that the trendy interpretation is fake. Wheat carefully demonstrates that there are in reality thirty-eight well-concealed dialectics in Hegel's most vital works--twenty-eight in Phenomenology of Spirit and ten in The Philosophy of History. Wheat additionally develops different significant new insights:

• Hegel's leader dialectical layout involves a two-concept thesis, a two-concept antithesis, and a two-concept synthesis that borrows one thought from the thesis and one from the antithesis.
• All dialectics are analogically according to the Christian separation-and-return fantasy: the dialectic separates from and returns to a thesis concept.
• Hegel's enigmatic Spirit is a four-faceted, intentionally fictitious, nonsupernatural entity that exists merely as an atheistic redefinition of "God."
• Spirit's "divine lifestyles" starts off now not with realization yet with unconsciousness, within the prehuman country of nature-before Spirit acquires its human mind.
• Hegel's inspiration of freedom isn't really a sociopolitical inspiration yet liberate from bondage to spiritual superstition (belief in a supernatural God).
• In Hegel's broadly misinterpreted master-and-slave parable, the grasp is God, the slave is guy, and the slave's gaining his freedom is man's turning into an atheist.
• the normal non-Hegelian base-superstructure interpretation of Marx's dialectics is fake. Marx's uncomplicated dialectic is absolutely this: thesis = communal possession poverty, antithesis = deepest possession wealth, synthesis = communal possession wealth.
Wheat additionally indicates that Marx and Tillich, who subtly used Hegelian dialectics of their personal works, are the one authors who've understood Hegelian dialectics.

Thoroughly researched and exhaustive intimately, this radical reinterpretation of Hegel's philosophy may still enormously curiosity Hegel students and students.
