A weekly line-by-line reading and discussion

Either through points of affinity or departure, nearly every academic philosophic tendency and left Marxist tendency traces itself back to Hegel’s dialectic first promulgated in his summary of 2500 years of history in his Phenomenology of Spirit. If the Phenomenology first introduced Hegel’s dialectic as a new language of freedom, it was a mere introduction to his 1812 Science of Logic, which can be called a full immersion in that language.

Though he had a conflicted relation to the dialectic in Hegel’s absolute Idea at the end of the Logic, Lenin personified a divide in the attitude toward Hegel within Marxism when he declared: “It is impossible fully to grasp Marx’s Capital, and especially it’s first chapter, if you have not studied through and understood the whole of Hegel’s Logic.”

This weekly line-by-line reading and discussion is open to all, including beginners with lots of questions and a desire to delve into Hegel’s Logic (on its 200th anniversary).
