3.3.3 - Philosophy
The lectures on the History of Philosophy deal disproportionately with the various epochs, and in some parts date from the beginning of Hegel?s career. In trying to subject history to the order of logic they sometimes misconceive the history of ideas. But they created the history of philosophy as a scientific study. They showed that a philosophical theory is not an accident or whim, but an exponent of its age determined by its antecedents and environments, and handing on its results to the future.
