This year I wrote an essay for a test based on Hegelian analysis of history. It was on a whim, but I got an excellent grade.

But is looking at history through the lens of Hegel's ideas a good way to examine it? I can think of a few examples of where I think it works, but I'm interested in your thoughts.

Although, pointless its nonetheless good to learn English grammar. Hegel is basic fundamentals which is a good starting point for other things.

Can you provide the examples here?
