G.W.F. Hegel on Planning - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 377
Plan/Hegel/Gadamer: Gadamer: [one has] to reconstruct (...) two different questions in (...) the case [of history](...), which also find two different answers: The question of meaning in the course of a great event and the question of the regularity of this course. (...) the interpreter of history [is] always in danger (...) of hypostasizing the context in which he or she recognizes a meaning as that meant by people who really act and plan.
, >History/Hegel, >World History/Hegel, >World/Hegel,
Plan/History/Hegel/Gadamer: This is only legitimate under the preconditions of Hegel, provided that the philosophy of history is initiated into the plans of the world spirit and from this initiated knowledge can distinguish certain individuals as world-historical individuals for whom there would be a real agreement between their particular thoughts and the world-historical meaning of the events.
>World spirit/Hegel.
Gadamer: However, a hermeneutic principle for the knowledge of history cannot be derived from these cases, which are characterized by the agreement of the subjective and objective in history.
>Hermeneutics, >Hermeneutics/Hegel, >Hermeneutics/Gadamer.
GadamerVsHegel: Compared with the historical tradition Hegel's teaching obviously has only a particular truth. The infinite web of motivations that makes up history only occasionally and over a short period of time gains the brightness of what is planned in a single individual.
What Hegel describes as an excellent case thus rests on the general basis of the disparity that exists between the subjective thoughts of an individual and the meaning of the whole of the course of history. In general, we experience the course of events as something that constantly changes our plans and expectations. Those who rigidly try to hold on to their plans are made aware of the powerlessness of their reason.
