Lectures on the History of Philosophy

I read sections of this for an online course on Kierkegaard, emphasizing how SK set himself up in dialogue with Hegel's interpretation of Socrates.

I really only know Hegel by reputation, and as a part of a whole bunch of philosophers who don't make any sense to me, so I expected it to be impenetrable. But! It was actually very clear, and totally reasonable to get through.
