By Leonard F. Wheat
• Hegel's leader dialectical structure comprises 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 basically as an atheistic redefinition of "God."
• Spirit's "divine existence" starts off no longer with cognizance yet with unconsciousness, within the prehuman country of nature-before Spirit acquires its human mind.
• Hegel's suggestion of freedom isn't a sociopolitical idea yet free up from bondage to spiritual superstition (belief in a supernatural God).
• In Hegel's largely misinterpreted master-and-slave parable, the grasp is God, the slave is guy, and the slave's gaining his freedom is man's changing into an atheist.
• the normal non-Hegelian base-superstructure interpretation of Marx's dialectics is fake. Marx's uncomplicated dialectic is really this: thesis = communal possession poverty, antithesis = deepest possession wealth, synthesis = communal possession wealth.
Wheat additionally exhibits 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 should still drastically curiosity Hegel students and students.
