This is the earliest know version of Hegel’s Encyclopedia, which he wrote for lecturing his older teenage pupil, when he was schoolmaster at the Ägidiengymnasium, Nürnberg.

It is interesting to observe that while the structure of the text is different from the later encyclopedia, the flow of the arguments is often already there. Due to less content and easier language, the flow here is often easier to follow.

Some parts of the translation have been done by translation programs. So it may still contain errors. Please compare the German version, when in doubt. You can also change the language by clicking on the rightmost menu item from the top menu bar .
