G. W. F. Hegel: A Secularized Theologian?
Henry, Martin (2005) G. W. F. Hegel: A Secularized Theologian? Irish Theological Quarterly, 70 (3). pp. 195-214.
This article pursues an idea underlying two previous contributions by the same author to the ITQ from the year 1998. It aims to examine the extent to which Hegelâs thought is rooted in the Western theological tradition and draws its strength from it. At the same time, it argues that Hegel secularized that tradition, no doubt unintentionally, by reacting too recklessly against the notion of divine transcendence (that deist thinkers in the eighteenth century had endorsed), thus ultimately preparing the way for Karl Marx.
