At the Conference

This two-day conference is going to address questions about the concept of world history in relation to the form, function, and content of objective spirit as presented in the Encyclopaedia of the Philosophical Sciences and Elements of the Philosophy of Right.

In the opening speeches, university professors will discuss their views on the philosophy of history and a Hegelian contribution to the question of civil religion.

There will be panels for the rest of the event about: rights, freedom and justice; philosophy; state and religion; and biopolitics all in relation to Hegelianism .

Why to go

If you are interested in Hegelianism, history, world politics or just want to learn something new from some world renowned professors from around the world then this conference will be worth your while.

As complicated as Hegel’s theory sounds, this conference is aimed at everyone, not just university intellectuals so feel free to pop along for free and expand your philosophical knowledge.

Who is Hegel

Hegel is a German philosopher who influenced the  tradition of philosophy, and has become increasingly influential in the analytic tradition as well. He primarily talks about the evolution of knowledge. Hegel argued for a radically different method of understanding, which he referred to as the ‘dialectic’.

After the philosopher’s death,  Hegelians wanted to define the system’s middle grounds with the philosophy of history and other parts of Hegel’s teachings and early writings.

I'm a young, aspirational journalism student at Kingston University trying to make a difference. Born in Kingston upon Thames, I have moved back here after spending most of my life growing up in Bristol. London is one of my favourite cities in the world, apart from New York, and as I have family it was a no brainer choosing to move back to this beautiful city. I have always had a passion for writing, however the topics I have wanted to write about has changed quite dramatically over the years. This blog will specifically document my journey as journalism student, preparing for the big bad world of work and taxes, as well as all of the opportunities the university are giving me. As of the moment, I am fascinated with the world of politics and crime having studied it within my A Levels subjects - History, Media Studies and English Language. Despite my huge interest in hard hitting subjects, I am obsessed with travelling to new places and meeting new people. I also love animals, discovering new music and watching films in bed (we all need a little time off from trying to save the world!)
