Hegel

Famous quotes containing the word hegel:

    To him who looks upon the world rationally, the world in its turn presents a rational aspect. The relation is mutual.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    History ... is, indeed, little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind.
    But what experience and history teach is this—that peoples and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    What is rational is actual and what is actual is rational. On this conviction the plain man like the philosopher takes his stand, and from it philosophy starts in its study of the universe of mind as well as the universe of nature.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
