In this paper, the writer draws comparisons between the philosophies of Aristotle and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, an 18th century German philosopher. The paper describes these men as seeing the process of human thought as linked to history and politics. Additionally, the paper explains that Aristotle and Hegel viewed human thought itself as a process which involved a system of logic. The author argues that Aristotle's beliefs perhaps laid the groundwork for the much later ideas of Hegel, and the influence of both men's philosophies on thought, logic, and politics influenced people and schools of thought for years after their deaths.
