    Encyclopedia of the philosophical Sciences

    1817

which gives a relatively brief survey of Hegel’s system

  1. starting in the first part (widely known as The Shorter Logic) with a summary of the Science of Logic (ontology, metaphysics);

  2. proceeding in the second part with a Philosophy of Nature (physics);

  3. and ending in the third part with a Philosophy of the Spirit which in turn

    1. contains a summary of the Phenomenology of Spirit (in its first section, B)

    2. and overlaps with (the preface of) the Lectures on the Philosophy of History (second section, C)

    3. and with the Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion (third section, b and c).

Hegel defines these three parts in the Introduction (§ 18) as:

  1. Logic: the science of the Idea in and for itself.

  2. The Philosophy of Nature: the science of the Idea in its otherness.

  3. The Philosophy of Mind: the science of the Idea come back to itself out of that otherness.
