Later German Philosophy: Hegel, Nietzsche
Pages 26

The philosophers Hegel (1770-1831) and Nietzsche (1844-1900) in many ways could hardly be more different; they differ in style, method and conclusions. Hegel is methodical and technical where Nietzsche is deliberately unsystematic and literary; this renders them both obscure and difficult to understand, but in different ways. Yet there is a connecting intellectual element, although what each makes of this common element produces quite different philosophies.
