(p.15) Chapter 1 Hegel and his Project
Understanding Hegel's Mature Critique of Kant

John Mccumber

Stanford University Press

This chapter pursues the issue of the independence of Hegel’s philosophical project from his critique of Kant and gives the bare bones of an account which sees that project as, in important ways, entirely independent of Kant’s. Two centuries of strenuous effort at understanding the nature of Hegel’s philosophical project have generated two main families of views—one for each century. Both are predicated on the views of Hegel’s relationship to Kant’s critical project, but their stances on this are opposed: the older view sees Hegel as revoking Kant’s critique of metaphysics, while the younger one, closer to this author’s own viewpoint, sees him as continuing it. This chapter sketches these two understandings of Hegel, highlights deficiencies, and posits new interpretations.
