Today I finished the seven month odyssey that was reading The Phenomenology of Spirit in a reading group. I'll fight the impulse to summarize something of this movement (unlike Hegel himself?), and give the old man the last word. Wes Furlotte, one of the participants of our reading group, a few months ago pointed out this passage, which, with the right inflection, is kind of funny (although you might have had to be there):
Whether something is held to be good or bad, it is in either case an action and an activity in which an individuality exhibits and expresses itself, and for that reason it is all good.
