...If one takes a panoramic view of Hegel s entire philosophical endeavor, the endeavor to come to grips with and to be committed to reality in the concrete, one is struck by one inescapable idea: the Hegelian enterprise is an extraordinarily unified and grandiose attempt to elaborate one concept, which Hegel sees as the root of all intelligibility, the concept of God, whatever that term is going to turn out to mean.... ...The question with which we are faced...is neither whether Hegel is correct in what he says nor whether his interpreters are justified in what they say of him. Rather the question is one of finding out just what Hegel does say and of determining what impact that can have on our own thinking.... ...Why, then, the Concept of God ? The answer is to be found in the culmination of the entire Hegelian system, The Philosophy of Absolute Spirit. Only in the light of absolute Spirit is anything Hegel says intelligible....in Hegel s view, absolute Spirit is in fact to be identified with God and that, therefore, only if Hegel s Concept of God is intelligible, will anything Hegel says be intelligible.
