University History Society presents a lecutre

Thu, February 19, 2009 • 6:00 PM • GAR 1.134

This week, the University History Society (UHS) is happy to have Ryan Haecker with us to speak on the highly regarded German historian and philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and the French Revolution of 1789.

A note from Ryan: "I intend to focus on Hegel's philosophy of history and how it related to interpreting the macro-historical causes of the French Revolution. This paper also examines different aspects of 19th century history and Hegel's philosophy, touching on emerging concepts of freedom and liberation which would play such a decisive role in the revolutionary politics of the 19th and 20th century."
