Hegel Party to Celebrate Finishing Self Consciousness!

Over the last two years, supported through most of it by my Patreon backers (and I ought to mention, through all of it, by my wife, Andi Sciacca), I've produced 95 total videos in the Half Hour Hegel series, taking us all the way to end of the Self-Consciousness section.

That's a major milestone for this series, and I wanted to mark it by hosting a celebration of sorts -- an online Hegel party!  I'll be hosting it using the Google+ hangouts platform that I've used with the Q&A sessions.

I'll be opening the hangout this Sunday, from 2-3 PM Central Standard Time, though I may well stick around for a while longer.  I'll post the link to the hangout as soon as it opens on my social media - my Google+, my Facebook, and my Twitter.

I will definitely be enjoying some beer and chatting with anyone who shows up - about the project itself, about Hegel, and about anything else they like.  So join in, raise a glass, and celebrate this milestone with all of us!

Nearly Finished With Self-Consciousness

Making decent progress, we're just two video installations away from finishing the entire Self-Consciousness section of the Phenomenology.  As a matter of fact, I've scheduled some time later today to shoot the last of the footage, edit the remaining two videos, and upload them into YouTube!

This is a pretty major milestone that we're approaching, and I've decided I'd like to celebrate it with my Patreon supporters, my other viewers, readers, and subscribers, and anyone else who wants to get in on a Hegel party.  That will take place by Google Hangout on January 31st, and I'll write more about that in the next several days.

At present, we've worked our way through fourteen video installations worth of material in the "Stoicism, Skepticism, and the Unhappy Consciousness," the third part of the Self-Consciousness section - eight of which have been specifically on the Unhappy Consciousness.  Here are those videos, in sequence:

  • Lecture 86 - sec. 206-208
  • Lecture 87 - sec. 209-210
  • Lecture 88 - sec. 211-212
  • Lecture 89 - sec. 213-216
  • Lecture 90 - sec. 217
  • Lecture 91 - sec. 218-220
  • Lecture 92 - sec. 221-222
  • Lecture 93 - sec. 223-226
