RENDON, Carlos E. Hegel's Path Towards the Phenomenology of Mind. Ideas y Valores [online]. 2008, vol.57, n.137, pp. 41-62. ISSN 0120-0062.
This paper seeks to reconstruct the possible steps followed by Hegel toward his Phenomenology of Mind. Taking into account the historical variants of the process, this paper will try to determine the meaning and the relationship between these variants and the philosophical consolidation of the book. The development of the text does not follow a linear evolution, but rather shows unexpected but comprehensible continuities and ruptures. These contingencies will be decisive for some of the main formulations of the book itself, showing it as a “result” in the more Hegelian sense of the word: as that which is intrinsically linked to its becoming.
