Comment on Hegel’s Phenomenology of Religion
Professor Harris has given a convincing account of the often misunderstood Chapter Seven of the Phenomenology, for a long time a puzzle to commentators. Many of the obscurities in it I have understood for the first time after reading his paper, and most Hegelians, I am sure, will agree with me. There is no point in my summarising what he has said; hence I shall confine myself to raising some issues on which I differ from him, and to challenging some of his remarks in the concluding section of his paper, where he goes beyond expounding Hegel, and discusses what religion should be after the Phenomenology.
