The webinar and online seminars on Hegel this month are part of a series of online events we have started this year. Each month, we focus on a different theme, and usually a different author.
On Tuesday, June 20, we'll be hosting a FREE 45-minute webinar covering some of the basics of Hegel's Master-Slave dialectic, with about 20 minutes of Q&A built in at the end. That's at 12:00 PM Central Time - and you can register for it here.
Then on Saturday, June 24, at two different times, we'll be hosting a much more intensive 2-hour online seminar going into much greater depth about the Master-Slave dialectic. You can find out more about that here. The first session will be at 10:00 AM Central Time, and the second at 4:00 PM Central Time. You can register for either one of those here.
If you'd like to hear a bit more about it, I've also created a video discussing these events.

We'll be holding the session via videoconference in our ReasonIO Free Conference Call online space - you can reach it here - and everybody is welcome to join in. It's at the usual time - 5 PM Central Time. I'll always give priority to people who actually have questions about Hegel's thought - and if you're reading Hegel, you're bound to have questions!
I offer these sessions the general public as a public service to help build awareness and understanding of Hegel's philosophy. The Patreon supporters of the Half Hour Hegel project effectively underwrite this online engagement - so many thanks to them!

What Hegel is developing in that first subsection is an eventual conflict between two main manifestations of the "Ethical Substance" - what he will term the Divine Law, with its locus in the Family, and the Human Law, with its locus in the State or Nation. Making it even more complicated, he will also connect these two sides with gender, placing Woman on the side of the Divine Law and the Family, and Man on the side of Human Law and the larger Community.
Here are those early videos, the first one of which is an introduction to the first section in general.
The next three are the beginning of the section proper
