Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A label attached to those disciples of Hegel in Germany who sought to develop and expand the dialectical spirit of Hegel's philosophy beyond the limitations of Hegel himself. ‘Old’ Hegelians, by contrast, saw the Hegelian system as the final and complete manifestation of that philosophic spirit. Nowadays, a list of the most famous of the Young Hegelians would certainly include, inter alia, Karl Marx, David Strauss, Ludwig Feuerbach, Bruno Bauer, Arnold Ruge, Max Stirner, and Moses Hess.
