Marx studied law at the University of Bonn and later at Berlin, where he switched to studying philosophy.
Until aroundHegel devoted himself to developing his ideas on religious and social themes, and seemed to have envisaged a future for himself as a type of modernising and reforming educator, in the image of figures of the German Enlightenment such as Lessing and Schiller.
In the s the University of Jena had become a center for the development of critical philosophy due to the presence of K.
Reinhold — and then Fichte, who taught there from until his dismissal on the grounds of atheism at the end of the decade. By that time, Schelling, who had first been attracted to Jena by the presence of Fichte, had become an established figure at the university. By late Hegel had completed his first major work, the Phenomenology of Spirit publishedwhich showed a divergence from his earlier, seemingly more Schellingian, approach.
Now without a university appointment he worked for a short time, apparently very successfully, as an editor of a newspaper in Bamberg, and then from — as the headmaster and philosophy teacher at a gymnasium high school in Nuremberg.
During his time at Nuremberg he married and started a family, and wrote and published his Science of Logic. In he managed to return to his university career by being appointed to a chair in philosophy at the University of Heidelberg, but shortly after, inhe was offered and took up the chair of philosophy at the University of Berlin, the most prestigious position in the German philosophical world.
Inwhile in Heidelberg he published the Encyclopaedia of the Philosophical Sciences, a systematic work in which an abbreviated version of the earlier Science of Logic the Encyclopaedia Logic or Lesser Logic was followed by the application of its principles to the philosophy of nature and the philosophy of spirit.
In in Berlin Hegel published his major work in political philosophy, Elements of the Philosophy of Right, based on lectures given at Heidelberg but ultimately grounded in the section of the Encyclopaedia Philosophy of Spirit dealing with objective spirit.
During the following ten years up to his death in Hegel enjoyed celebrity at Berlin, and published subsequent versions of the Encyclopaedia.
After his death versions of his lectures on philosophy of history, philosophy of religion, aesthetics, and the history of philosophy were published.
Hegel himself had been a supporter of progressive but non-revolutionary politics, but his followers divided into factions broadly groupable as those of the left, right and centre Toews ; from the left, Karl Marx was to develop his own purported scientific approach to society and history which appropriated many Hegelian ideas into a materialistic outlook.
Later, especially in reaction to orthodox Soviet versions of Marxism, many so-called Western Marxists re-incorporated further Hegelian elements back into their forms of Marxist philosophy.
In academic philosophy, Hegelian idealism had seemed to collapse dramatically after and the failure of the revolutionary movements of that year, but underwent a revival in both Great Britain and the United States in the last decades of the nineteenth century.
In Britain, where philosophers such as T. However, a later generation of French philosophers coming to prominence in the s tended to react against Hegel in ways analogous to those in which early analytic philosophers had reacted against the Hegel who had influenced their predecessors.
In the s the German philosopher Klaus Hartmann developed what was termed a non-metaphysical interpretation of Hegel which, together with the work of Dieter Henrich and others, played an important role in the revival of interest in Hegel in academic philosophy in the second half of the century.
By the close of the twentieth century, even within core logico-metaphysical areas of analytic philosophy, a number of individuals such as Robert Brandom and John McDowell had started to take Hegel seriously as a significant modern philosopher, although generally within analytic circles a favorable reassessment of Hegel has still a long way to go.
The contents of philosophical knowledge, we might suspect, will come from the historically changing contents of its cultural context. On the other, there is the hint of such contents being raised to some higher level, presumably higher than other levels of cognitive functioning such as those based in everyday perceptual experience, for example, or those characteristic of other areas of culture such as art and religion.
This higher level takes the form of conceptually articulated thought, a type of cognition commonly taken as capable of having purportedly eternal contents think of Plato and Frege, for example. In line with such a conception, Hegel sometimes referred to the task of philosophy as that of recognising the concept Der Begriff in the mere representations Vorstellungen of everyday life.
In contrast, the British Hegelian movement at the end of the nineteenth century tended to ignore the Phenomenology and the more historicist dimensions of his thought, and found in Hegel a systematic metaphysician whose Logic provided the basis for a definitive philosophical ontology.
This latter traditional metaphysical view of Hegel dominated Hegel reception for most of the twentieth century, but from the s came to be challenged by scholars who offered an alternative non-metaphysical, post-Kantian view.What I intend to do is to discuss Hegel's influence on Western Marxism, more specifically: to look at the impact of Hegel's dialectic on the thought of Lukacs, generally seen as the inspirer of the tradition, which, for the first time since Marx, is treated as central to the revolutionary critique of capitalism and which has its theoretical.

In the London Communist League (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels) used Hegel's theory of the dialectic to back up their economic theory of communism. Now, in the 21st century, Hegelian-Marxist thinking affects our entire social and political structure.
