The first two sections of this chapter describe the concept and the evolution of consciousness. The finite organism brings the hidden unity to light because it is knowingly alive. But it is also consciously finite; and the infinite process against which it has emerged is broken up into a field and a sequence of finite parts by its awareness. As a real process in the world, the spirit embraces all rational consciousness. The third section deals with language, tool, and patrimony. The fourth section discusses the struggle for recognition, and life in the Volk. The last section explores the concept of the Absolute Spirit.

Keywords:   consciousness, language, patrimony, Absolute Spirit, Hegel
