Next date and further clarifications
The next meeting will be at my house on Thursday the 20th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the address, (it was posted it to the ccs-phd list). I think it's best to go through the book slowly, throughly and consistently in a quiet room. Due to the nature of the Phenomenology of Spirit as outlined in the Preface, may I suggest that we do not try to summarize or pin down the slippery Hegel too prematurely. Each section in a way sublates the section that precedes it.
For those of you who have missed most or a few or all of the sessions it is indeed not too late to join in! We indeed have not gotten very far with the Phenomenology of Spirit. For those of you who will not be able to make weekly meetings, I think if we keep a steady slow pace that you will be able to join in every two weeks or just attend the sessions on the section you are interested in, if you are already familiar with the book. We will post the dates, the corresponding sections and the locations (whose house it will be held in or what room in Goldsmiths) after the meeting on Thursday on this site and to the ccs-list. I will send out weekly reminders of the section and the location (with full address) on the ccs-phd list.
See you Thursday.
