of the 19th century:
- Jahrbücher für wissenschaftliche Kritik The famous Journal, edited by Eduard Gans, in which Hegel and many of his pupils and friends published. Degenerated under massive pressure from the censor in the last 1830s/early 1840s, after Gans died and the new King issued an aggressive anti Hegelian Policy.
- Hallische Jahrbücher - Famous left Hegelian Philosophical Journal from Echtermeyer and Ruge, published outside the direct reach of the Prussian censorship. Became the leading Hegelian Journal after the censorship of the JWK.
- Der Gedanke - Philosophical Journal of Michelet and Cieszkowski and their Philosophical Society. An unsuccessful attempt to create a Hegelian revival in post 1870’s Berlin
Hegel Biographies in the internet
- Illustrated Hegel Biography V. 1.07.06, the hegel.net Hegel Biography based on the Encyclopedia Britannica article on Hegel of 1911, updated and appended to reflect the latest Hegel Research, by Kai Froeb and Maurizo Canfora,
- the first and official Hegel Biography from Hegel’s student Karl Rosenkranz as PDF scanned from the original German version of 1844
- excerpts of the above Hegel Biography from Rosenkranz, translated into English by Stephen Cowley Here is the website’s description: “Here is a key to our Hegel biography, which is based largely on Karl Rosenkranz’s Hegels Leben (1844) in the French edition by Pierre Osmo. It includes links to the individual chapters. Whilst we cannot compete with the books of Walter Kaufmann, Horst Althaus, Jacques D’Hondt or Terry Pinkard, we can claim an exposition refounded on the earliest source, Karl Rosenkranz. Hegel scholarship has corrected Rosenkranz on the dating and authorship of several early manuscripts and built on his indications of Hegel’s role in society, but perhaps diverged for many years from the facts he set out, particularly on the politics of the Restoration period in Berlin.”
- Edward Caird’s “Hegel”. This is the complete 224-page book, first published in Edinburgh and London in 1883 and probably the first English Hegel Biography. Prof.Caird was one of the heads of the British Hegelians of his time and so the book is a document of the English Hegel reception of that time in it’s own right. Of course, some of the material presented is outdated by current Hegel research, but the masterful painting out of many colourful atmospheric notes still remains.
