Hegel and Marx
This course is focused on the work of Hegel and Marx, 19th century philosophers who 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. 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.
