Trinity Term 2016, Thursdays 4–6pm at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford

READING GROUP ON HEGEL'S ANTHROPOLOGY

This website provides information for an ongoing reading group on Hegel's philosophy at the University of Oxford as well as information about a workshop series which has covered Hegel's Logic and Hegel's Psychology so far.

The reading group will continue meeting in Trinity term 2016 at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford / Radcliffe Observatory Quarter on Woodstock Road on Thursdays, between 4pm and 6pm, Meeting Room 2.

This term we are continuing with Hegel's Anthropology, which constitutes the beginning (§§ 377–412) of his entire Philosophy of Spirit as laid out in the third part of his Encyclopaedia. For available translations see below.

This seminar has an informal character and we tend to read the text during the sessions. It is intended to take place over two terms (Hilary and Trinity 2016). Non-philosophers and beginners in Hegel's philosophy are welcome to join at this juncture. For enquiries, please contact Susanne Herrmann-Sinai:
