|Abstract||Anyone who has ever attempted to come to terms with Hegel will understand how impossible it is to cover major aspects of his thought in just a few pages. In this chapter the aim is simply to introduce provisionally some Hegelian motifs that will recur throughout the course of this study. I shall discuss Hegel's general method and the features of Hegel's system that are most relevant to the present work. The aim throughout is to present those aspects of Hegel's thought that help us understand Marx's theory. But different aspects of Hegel are important for different aspects of Marx. Hegel's Phenomenology is most important for an understanding of the theory of alienation in the 1844 Manuscripts ; the theory of history found in the German Ideology is defined in opposition to Hegel's unpublished lectures on the Philosophy of History , and so on. The present work does not attempt a full-scale treatment of the intellectual relationship between the two thinkers. It is concerned only with Marx's economic theory as found especially in Capital and The Theories of Surplus Value . Yet more specifically, it is concerned only with the systematic dimensions of that theory. In this context a comparison with the systematic writings of Hegel's mature period - the Logic, the Philosophy of Right , the Encyclopaedia - is called for (although I shall refer to other works where relevant).|
