German quotationsEdit

I expanded the article from its previous state; among other things, I added the original German quotations, but not speaking any German, I may have left out parts of quotes. Please change them if needed. 19:40, 20 September 2009 (UTC)


I added the longish quotation that begins with "Verachte nur Vernunft und Wissenschaft" because I was trying to understand the quotation from Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right because the version I am using quotes the German Goethe without translating it into English. When I went looking for the quotation online, it looks to me like Hegel slightly misquoted Goethe. I tried to provide my own translation of the Hegel quotation by comparing it to what was in the original German and then using a German-English dictionary to try to understand what was different about Hegel's version. Someone who speaks German should probably check to make sure that my translation is accurate and provide a better translation if it is not. 00:25, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
