Hegel’s Grand Synthesis: A Study of Being, Thought, and History


This book offers the first genuinely systematic treatment of Hegel’s eschatology in the literature. It is an investigation into Hegel’s project to demonstrate the ultimate unity of thought and being (consciousness and reality, self and world). The author traces the project through Hegel’s epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of history.

The grand synthesis creates a basic tension, an ambivalence, that reaches its most acute formulation in Hegel’s eschatological language of a final completion or fulfillment of history. This conflicts with his dialectic and Heraclitan metaphysics of becoming. Berthold-Bond concludes that a substantially new approach to Hegel’s eschatology is needed.
