Eldrick reviews the messiness and metaphilosophy of Hegel – In our Literary Journal, Eldrick reviews the works of German Philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. He writes: “Being a philosopher with a bestriding focus on movement and an almost antagonistic drive towards stasis, it is evident that Hegel would allow his thoughts to run astray and lead them as far as they can, without restraint. Evidently, this also means that as readers, we are led farther astray into a realm of the indecipherable or unknowable.” Are the works of Hegel merely messy unknowns, or are they the work of a genius?
