Understanding Hegel's Mature Critique of Kant

Hegel’s criticisms of Kant’s views on ontology often seem to obfuscate the source material or miss Kant’s point entirely, which has been duly observed by Barbara Herman, Karl Ameriks, and John Rawls among others. Yet many of these attempts to understand Hegel’s critique of Kant have viewed Hegel’s criticisms piecemeal, and on Kant’s terms. A more coherent path to understanding Hegel’s commentary on Kant must position his critique in the context of Hegel’s overall philosophical project. His stance on Kant indicates how he stands with respect to himself, and if his critique of Kant’s theoretical philosophy achieves nothing else, it teaches us about Hegel. That it achieves nothing else may indeed by the case.
