Religion, Modernity, and Politics in Hegel

Thomas Lewis

Oxford University Press

In treating “The Concept of Religion,” Chapter Four provides — in a relatively abstract form — the essential elements of Hegel's account of religion. After a preliminary account of “the absolute” as a kind of placeholder, the chapter analyzes Hegel's treatment of different forms of cognition: immediate knowledge, feeling, representation, and thought. This account of cognition provides the key to Hegel's account of the difference between religion and philosophy. The final section of the chapter takes up Hegel's treatment of the cultus, or religious community, and the central role of practice therein.
