This project intends to propose a interpretation of the young Hegel that seeks to overcome the present dichotomy in which the Hegelsforschung finds itself. That means overcome the alternatives, either, to reconstruct the hegelian path from Stuttgart to Iena through the relationship of Hegel with some philosophical currents existents in Germany during the passage to the XIX century; either, through the modifications of Hegel's apprehension of the political economy and of the political events of his time. In this sense, this project tries to investigate how the idea of a popular religion aiming to overcome the divisions of modernity (that Hegel drafts still in his Stuttgart's school) transforms itself due to the tensions involved in the attempt (made since Tübingen and persevered in Bern and Frankfurt) to conciliate the dynamics of the needs that distinguishes modern society with the concept, that shows kantian roots, of need of reason. Moreover, is still in the scope of this project to investigate how, after moving himself to Iena, Hegel gives up his idea of a popular religion and embraces the attempt to overcome the divisions of modernity through the media work and recognition.
