Subject: [xmca] Hegel's psychology

This is just for people interested in Hegel.

Hegel's psychology he called "Subjective Spirit". The text is very 
schematic and impenetrable, and it was only in 1971 that an English 
translation of the text was published together with the lecture notes 
which make it comprehensible. Since then only 2 books have been 
published in English on the Subjective Spirit - TWO! One just a few 
months ago, the other in 1988. It is understandable then how the 
intellectual fad around his Phenomenology, which has generated 100s of 
1000s of books, has obscured Hegel's real, developed and mature ideas 
about the individual mind. Having just read the full version of Hegel's 
text and the only two books on the topic, I have written my summary.


This is just a draft and is incomplete, so any commentary would be 
welcome at this point.
The "Subjective Spirit" is very antique and speculative, but offers a 
lot of leads for anyone working on psychology, but particularly learning 
and cognition.
