Existentialism 9/7 Hegel and Kierkegaard Hegel (NOT EXISTENTIALIST) - I hate reading him - Very metaphysical despite analytic approach - Metaphysical- beyond the veil of reality, lots to do with ontology, the science of being - Is an ontological idealist o Needs to be combined with minds to receive o Berkely- immaterialism, no such thing as matter, things are made up of our perceptions Problem- if nobody there to perceive, how? Solution- god perceives everything o Kant- critical idealism- independent things exist, but only as experience perceptions (they cause manifold of sensation) Limited by time and causality Problem- how does something outside of the mind affect it? - Hegel returns to nothing existing outside of the mind - Our individual minds are the manifold for which a broader mind realizes itself o The IDEA - Reason- what goes on in and through individual minds. o Utilizes mind o Mind is equated to an orchestra, individuals are in and out - Things-in-themselves are unnecessary and unprovable (Kantian term)
