We Begin the Section "Perception"

We're now starting a new section, "Perception," the second in the very first part of the Phenomenology, "Consciousness" -- and the first video is now available.   It's a bit of a long one, coming in at about 37 minutes, but close enough to 30, I suppose to still be called "Half Hour Hegel."

At the end of all of the dialectical twists and turns in the previous section, "Sense Certainty," Hegel had brought us to the point where we could see that the real truth of experience, of what appears to be immediate sensation, is the Universal.  That culminated in a shift of focus to Perception, which grasps universals in the sensible particulars.
