From his parents and upbringing, Hegel acquired a sense for the immense importance of tradition and social milieu in delineating the life of modern man. Friedrich Wilhelm Georg Hegel,1 born like Hölderlin in 1770, was the son of an important ducal official and of a mother whose family for generations had played an important role in the Church and in the Estates. During his childhood and adolescence in Stuttgart, the capital of Württemberg, Hegel was exposed both to the extravagance of the court and to the matter-of-fact professionalism which prevailed in his home and among his father’s friends and colleagues.2
