Andy Blunden on Hegel

These articles follow the development of broadly pragmatic interpretation of Hegel’s philosophy of Spirit,
which utilises Lev Vygotsky’s Cultural Historical Activity Theory to appropriate a non-metaphysical conception of Subjectivity consistent with Hegel’s conception of spirit as both Subject and Substance.
