Happy Birthday, G.W.F. Hegel

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (G.W.F. Hegel), a German philosopher born 27 August 1770, read Rousseau, Lessing, Klopstock, and Wieland in his youth. He later on authored Outlines of the Philosophy of Right, arguably one of the greatest works of moral, social, and political philosophy. The conceptual difficulty of his work stunted its popularity, and many of his contemporaries criticized both Hegel and is work. Fellow German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, for example, accused Hegel of being a paid agent of the Prussian government.
