Early Theological Writings
This volume includes Hegel's most important early theological writings, though not all of the materials collected by Herman Nohl in his definitive "Hegels theologische Jugendschriften" (Tuebingen, 1907). The most significant omissions are a series of fragments to which Nohl give the general title "National Religion and Christianity" and the essay "Life of Jesus."

I enrolled in Loyola University Chicago's MA/PhD program in philosophy in order to continue the work I'd started at Union Theological Seminary in the field. Most particularly, I wanted to expand the book on the philosophical bases of C.G. Jung's thought to go beyond just Kant to Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and possibly Dilthey and others. More generally, I wanted to read all the classics in philosophy to get clearer on, as Kant had it, what I could know, what I ought do and what I might believe.
Wonderful, surprisingly enough. The notion of love is quite helpful in understanding the master/slave dialectic in the Phen. Brilliant, rich insights into an emerging subject's relation to nature and to god. Relatively clear. Also, there are rather effective arguments against the categorical imperative of Kant. Very highly recommended, allowed me a better understanding of Hegel's thought.
