About

For years, my YouTube audience asked me to tackle a very complex classic work in Philosophy - Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit

After a lot of thought, I decided to attempt something that has never before been done - a video series that would provide expert commentary, going through Hegel's text paragraph by paragraph. There are excellent commentaries on the Phenomenology available in book form. There are even some great videos out there about parts or aspects of Hegel's thought. But, until now, there has never been a digital series providing in-depth but also down-to-earth commentary covering the entire work.

Actually, there still isn't, at least not entirely! Right now, after nearly two and a half years of solid work, I've produced over 125 half-hour videos covering the first 320 paragraphs of the work - so we're getting close to the halfway point! You can see what I've done by going to the Half-Hour Hegel blog, where I've started curating and arranging the videos, anticipating a lot more content to organize over the next several years.

Here's where you come in - if you'd like to support an innovative educational project that will provide a valuable resource for generations to come. I do all of the planning, shooting, teaching, editing, and uploading for this series - and a lot of time, work, and thought goes into each video. I'm actually all right with that - I enjoy reading and teaching about Hegel, and viewers watching and learning from the videos say they get a lot out of them - but I'd love to be able to make at least a portion of my living sharing my knowledge and my passion for this work. So, I'm looking for patrons who'd like to support this long-term project - if you see the value in this work, you're exactly the kind of person I'd like to have behind me!

I'm committed to seeing the entire project through, all the way to the last paragraph (#808) of the work. I've already put in one and a half years of work, and at the rate of one or two videos a week, I'm expecting the entire project will demand another 3 years from me.



Goals
$189 of $250 per Video
With somewhere between 200-250 more videos yet to produce, that will reduce the time still required to bring out all of the videos in the series from between 3-4 years to 2-2½ years.
