Further Into the Struggle of Enlightenment With Superstition

We're making good progress through this long and quite complex - though often enough schematic - section of the Phenomenology.  If there is one central theme running through the entire section, you might say that it is how both Faith and Pure Insight - as shapes of consciousness - are attempting to work out what they actually are.

Neither of them can really do this apart from their other, since they are what they are in relation to each other.  Even if Insight seems to have an advantage over Faith in the historical period of the Enlightenment, this isn't an absolute priority.  Faith has its own "comebacks", and Insight has a lot to learn. . . .

Here are the next three videos in this portion of the work, covering the next six paragraphs.
