This chapter details Hegel's formative years from 1770 to 1788. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was born at Stuttgart on 27 August 1770. He was the eldest son of Georg Ludwig Hegel, who was a minor financial official in the court of the Duchy of Wurttemberg. Hegel's historical conception of human nature gradually emerged in the essay ‘On the religion of the Greeks and Romans’ which he wrote as a school task in August 1787.
