Stranica 19 - The History of the world is none other than the progress of the consciousness of Freedom; a progress whose development according to the necessity of its nature it is our business to investigate. The general statement given above, of the various grades in the consciousness of Freedom...
Stranica 34 - A World-historical individual is not so unwise as to indu.ge a variety of wishes to divide his regards. He is devoted to the One Aim, regardless of all else. It is even possible that such men may treat other great, even sacred interests, inconsiderately ; conduct which is indeed obnoxious to moral reprehension. But so mighty a form must trample down many an innocent flower — crush to pieces many an object in its path.
Stranica 95 - Africa proper, as far as History goes back, has remained - for all purposes of connection with the rest of the World - shut up; it is the Gold-land compressed within itself - the land of childhood, which lying beyond the day of self-conscious history, is enveloped in the dark mantle of Night...
Stranica 9 - The only Thought which Philosophy brings with it to the contemplation of History, is the simple conception of Reason; that Reason is the Sovereign of the World; that the history of the world, therefore, presents us with a rational process.
Stranica 28 - The connection of events above indicated involves also the fact, that in history an additional result is commonly produced by human actions beyond that which they aim at and obtain — that which they immediately recognize and desire.

Stranica 40 - State, which is that form of reality in which the individual has and enjoys his freedom; but on the condition of his recognizing, believing in, and willing that which is common to the Whole.
Stranica 90 - America is therefore the land of the future, where, in the ages that lie before us, the burden of the World's History shall reveal itself, — perhaps in a contest between North and South America.
Stranica 39 - What is the material in which the Ideal of Reason is wrought out? The primary answer would be— Personality itself— human desires— Subjectivity generally. In human knowledge and volition, as its material element, Reason attains positive existence. We have considered subjective volition where it has an object which is the truth and essence of a reality, viz., where it constitutes a great world-historical passion. As a subjective will, occupied with limited passions, it is dependent, and can gratify...
Stranica 6 - But what experience and history teach ' is this, — that peoples and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from / it.
