A History of Philosophy in Epitome by Schwegler

With Hegel closes the history of philosophy


(3.)

_The Absolute Philosophy_, or the thought knowing itself as all truth, and reproducing the whole natural and intellectual universe from itself, having the system of philosophy for its development--a closed circle of circles.

With Hegel closes the history of philosophy. The philosophical developments which have succeeded him, and which are partly a carrying out of his system, and partly the attempt to lay a new basis for philosophy, belong to the present, and not yet to history.

THE END.

FOOTNOTES:

[Footnote 1: This word literally means _clearing up_, but has a philosophical sense for which no precise equivalent is found in the English language. When used physically, it denotes that every obstruction which prevented the clear sight of the bodily eye is removed, and when used psychologically it implies the same fact in reference to our mental vision. The _Aufklaerung_ in philosophy is hence the clearing up of difficulties which have hindered a true philosophical insight. To express this, I know of no better word than the literal rendering, "_up-clearing_" or "_clearing up_" which the reader will find adopted in the following pages.--TRANSLATOR.]

[Footnote 2: The article on Socrates, from page 52 to page 64, was translated by Prof. N. G. Clark, of the University of Vermont.]

[Footnote 4: Schelling died August 20th, 1854, at Ragaz, Switzerland, whither he had gone for the benefit of his health, which had long been declining.--TRANSLATOR.]
