Nelly V. Motrošilova


The article deals with Hegel’s concepts in “Phenomenology of Spirit”: “phenomenon“ (Phänomen), “appearance“ (Erscheinung), “shape“ (Gestalt). The author shows that they come from the Kant’s philosophy. According to the investigator, “phenomenon“ and the related concepts in Kant’s “Critics of pure judgment” are used in order to characterize the sensual data. It is shown, that in the Hegel “Phenomenology of Spirit” these concepts assume new features. There they are related to the concept of spirit and characterize the social–historical data.
