Hegel’s Encyclopaedic System and its Legacy
32th International Hegel Congress of the International Hegel-Society
at the University of Tampere
June 5–8, 2018, Tampere Finland
In 2017, it will be 200 years since the first edition of Hegel’s Encyclopedia, in which Hegel’s system found its form in outline, to be revised and developed in subsequent editions. This congress discusses the nature of Hegel’s system (including the relationship between Spirit, Nature and categories of Logic), the difference between the first and subsequent editions of Encyclopedia, and considers the legacy of Hegelian speculative thinking in which the true is the whole and where “negativity” is put to productive use. It also addresses the question of whether and how the value of Hegel’s social philosophy depends on accepting Hegel’s system.
The congress will also include special sessions on the Finnish, Scandinavian and Russian reception of Hegel as well as on Hegel & Marx (200 years since the birth of Marx).
The official languages of the congress are English, German, and French.
