The Greatest Ambition of Philosophy

It took Gregory Sadler 10 years to explain Hegel in his "Half Hour Hegel" YouTube series. Half Hour Hegel is complete, was it worth the time? Yes. Was it worth the effort? Yes. We know this because once you fully understand Hegel you will know that progress education is always worth the time.

This comic is in tribute to Gregory Sadler finishing his Half Hour Hegel, in which he does a close reading of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit, one of philosophy's most notoriously long and difficult works. He started February 27, 2014 (nearly ten years ago, just a few months after I started this comic), and he finished with his 377th video last Friday, September 21 2023, finally explaining the concept of Absolute Knowing (and also hinting that he might re-read it from the start now, come on man give Hegel a rest!). To me this is one of the longest and most dedicated YouTube projects that I know of, especially considered that Hegel isn't as popular of a subject matter as, say, silly cats. So if you have a spare 189 hours or so for Hegel, give it a listen.

Or you can check out his hundreds of much more reasonably length videos about dozens of different philosophers.

Or better yet support him on patreon if you believe in this kind of free public philosophy education.
