Abstract

<p>Abstract:</p><p>Jon Stewart has recently argued that Hegel&apos;s defense of Friedrich Creuzer&apos;s controversial <i>Symbolik</i> should give us pause to reconsider the widely held view of Hegel&apos;s philosophy as racist and Eurocentric. More attention needs to be paid, however, to the strategy that Hegel employs in this defense. This article argues for the influence of Aristotle&apos;s theory of epigenesis on Hegel&apos;s philosophy of nature as well as his understanding of the stages of world-historical development. This Aristotelian understanding privileges the masculine West in relation to the feminine East that provides the material but not the vital efficient cause that animates Greek culture.</p>
