PHL 505

Hegel and Marx

Hegel and Marx were influential for introducing the notion that our lives only make sense when understood historically, in relation to our struggle with nature and with each other. We'll see that whereas Hegel saw this struggle as oriented towards greater self-knowledge and the freedom of the human spirit, Marx saw it in materialist terms, arguing that economic exploitation, and in particular capitalism, is the main obstacle to human freedom.
