George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel


One of the great German philosophers, Hegel is principally known for his famous dialectic: thesis generates antithesis, to be superseded by a synthesis of the rational within them and a repudiation of the irrational. Hegel advanced in his academic career, producing works such as the Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences and the Philosophy of Right. He occupied successive chairs in philosophy in Heidelberg and Berlin, where he died of epidemic cholera.
