Seen as one of the world"s greatest thinkers at the time. There are a series of start-stop, periods of change in human history things change through a breaking of the old world and a build-up of the new world: always starting a new world. Human"s have the capacity for reason and that can manifest as a negative force that works as part of a dialectic. The world operates on a rational framework laws that hegel terms the world"s: to him who looks at the world rationally the world looks rationally back . A mechanic who looks at a car engine understands how everything works this is a similar premise.

Therefore the world is a combination of nature and spirit linking together to create an idea.
