Religion, Modernity, and Politics in Hegel

Thomas Lewis

Oxford University Press

With this interpretation of Hegel's larger project to draw upon, the third chapter turns to Hegel's mature philosophy of religion itself. Understanding the multiple tasks that Hegel's philosophy of religion takes on requires situating it in relation to both the more immediate historical context and the systematic philosophical context. The former enables us to appreciate the social concerns that continue to occupy Hegel during the Napoleonic and post-Napoleonic periods. The latter addresses the movement from Hegel's logic through the emergence of the conception of spirit; it thus articulates the philosophical presuppositions of the starting point of Hegel's philosophy of religion.

Keywords:   post-Napoleonic, historical context, spirit, system
