The Logic of Hegel

Oxford University Press, 1892


The Logic of Hegel contains the first part of Hegel’s Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences in Outline, The Science of Logic, and an introduction and explanatory notes by translator William Wallace. Hegel created this as a shortened version of his larger work of the same name to be used as the basis for a course in philosophy. In this work, Hegel argues, following and adapting Kant, that the mind shapes reality. Going beyond Kant, Hegel argues that the logical conclusion of this proposition is that mind and reality share the same structures. Consequently, reality is much more like an idea than a thing.

About Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) was born in Stuttgart, Germany. He received his early education at the Gymnasium Illustre in Stuttgart. He entered the seminary at the University of Tubingen in 1788, graduating with a degree in theology. After graduating, Hegel tutored the children of an aristocratic family in Berlin. He left Berlin to lecture on logic and metaphysics at the university in Jena, becoming an Extraordinary Professor in 1805. Displaced by Napoleon’s campaign through Prussia, Hegel took the position of editor at a newspaper in Bamberg. In 1808, Hegel left Bamberg to become headmaster of a gymnasium in Nuremberg. In 1811, he married Marie Helena Susanna von Tucher, with whom he had two sons. Hegel briefly accepted a post at the University of Heidelberg before accepting the chair of philosophy at the University of Berlin, where he remained until his death.
