HEGEL, G W F

1770 - 1831
Germany
PHILOSOPHY, RELIGION

 

Philosopher and theologian who saw philosophy as setting out in rational terms what is already known and expressed in the language of religious myth. Education is the process of self-realisation, the development of the human spirit, thereby becoming self-aware and free. Consciousness of God is the other side of the coin of human self-knowledge and most fully realised in Christianity but anticipated also in other religions.
