The introduction to Hegel’s lectures on the philosophy of world history is often used to introduce students to Hegel’s philosophy, in part because Hegel’s sometimes difficult style is muted in the lectures, and he discourses on accessible themes such as world events in order to explain his philosophy. Much of the work is spent defining and characterizing Geist or spirit. Geist is similar to the culture of people, and is constantly reworking itself to keep up with the changes of society, whil ...

Fear Less U
Monthly
 
We all experience fear. Rational or irrational, fear is very real to the person experiencing it. But fear is like a wild beast, and when you fight against a wild beast, backing it into a corner, it doesn't submit or relent. Instead, it fights against you harder, because it's just trying to survive! So instead of "conquering" our fears, what would it look like if we instead sought to understand them. Because if you can understand your fears more, you can learn to fear fear itself less.This is ...

The Human Bible
Monthly
 
It is a book cobbled together long ago over the course of many centuries by regular, flawed human beings, and yet its contents are considered sacrosanct by billions of people.

(Who, or what, are the Nephilim anyway?) Surely, there must be someone who can help us come to terms with this weighty, ...

In the treatise, Spinoza put forth his most systematic critique of Judaism, and all organized religion in general. Spinoza argued that theology and philosophy must be kept sepa ...
 
There are various fundamental issues in education in India today which need to addressed in a open and honest manner.
