This paper reviews how Hegel's aesthetic ideal is associated with art or more specifically fine art, as the first of three expressions of the culmination of spiritual development from objective then subjective to the absolute, or the combination of both objective and subjective spiritual awareness. The paper goes on to discuss how 'absolute reality' is what Hegel would refer to as the 'absolute spirit', or the world spirit that is shared by all.
