The new nineteenth century found Hegel resolved to go to the University of Jena and carve a place for himself, if he could, as a philosopher. After 1800, he always remained a ‘Son of the Gods’ – one who did not speak easily in the tongues of men. The tension between his formal commitment as a supporter of Schelling's system and the natural evolution of his own concerns and problems – expressed in what he called ‘System’ before he went to Jena – was a source of difficulty and uncertainty for Hegel himself in these years. If no one understood him at this stage, it was at least partly because he did not yet fully understand himself. This chapter describes Hegel as a protégé of Schelling, a doctor of philosophy, a critical journalist, an extraordinary professor, and a private man.
