Hi everyone! If any of you listened to my episodes on Deleuze's "Cinema" books, you'd know that I would have had no hope of ever presenting them without the help of my friend, Christina. In the coming weeks she will be getting Facial Feminization Surgery at the Visage clinic in Toronto, Ontario. As some of you may know, the cost for FFS is inordinate and so she has set up a gofudme to try and mitigate the overwhelming cost. If any of you have a little extra money, please consider donating. If would mean a lot to her, and me alike.

In this episode, I present the chapter titled "Spirit." It is here that Hegel turns his gaze to society, paying specific attention to the dynamic interaction between individuals vying for their own livelihood and the community in which these individuals exist. It traverses through three phases denoted by three sub-chapters: "The True Spirit. The Ethical Order" (7:00), "Self-Alienated Spirit. Culture" (22:12), and "Spirit that is Certain of Itself. Morality (55:27).

It then presents the chapter titled "Reason" (24:26) and the sub-chapters "Observing Reason" (27:56), "Actualization of Rational Self-Consciousness through its own Activity" (46:55), and "Individuality which takes Itself to be Real in and for-itself" (60:05).

In the first episode of this four part series, I turn my attention to G.W.F. Hegel's "Phenomenology of Spirit," a text as necessary to read as it is difficult to read. This episode specifically tackles the chapters: "Preface" (beginning); "Introduction" (34:50); and "Consciousness" comprised of the sub-chapters "Sense-Certainty" (38:45), "Perception" (49:50), and "Understanding" (57:10). In these chapters, he begins by outlining what he hopes his project to accomplish, and then moves into delineating exactly how human consciousness moves through various phases on the way to Absolute Spirit.

In this episode, I turn my attention to Derrida's groundbreaking essay, "Structure, Sign, and Play." It is here that he lays the foundation of what would become deconstruction, the destabilization of the assumed univocality of either term in a binary. He does this by undoing the oft-assumed belief that structures do not move, and that they are fundamentally opposed to "play."
