Translated by Wm. T. Harris
In 1840, The Editors of Hegel's works published a small volume with the title, Hegel's Philosophical Propaedeutics. The work, which was edited by Karl Rosenkranz, contains substantially the original outline of the Course of Instruction in Philosophy which Hegel gave at the Gymnasium at Nürnberg in 1808-1811, together with sundry additions made from notes taken at the lectures and other sources. The course was divided into three years: 1st year- Science of Rights, of Morals, and of Religion; 2nd year- Phenomenology of Spirit and Logic; 3rd year- Science of the Idea and Philosophical Encyclopaedia. This text is the entire exposition of the Phenomenology as it occurs in the second year of the course.
