Here is a very interesting description of two possible interpretations of Hegel's thought--a metaphysical view, and a post-Kantian interpretation. I have been conceptualizing Hegel in the metaphysical interpretation, but the post-Kantian interpretation is almost certainly more correct. Also, from an ontologically Idealist point of view, the two interpretations are, I think, identical. It is the writer of the article's perspective as an ontological materialist that creates the distinction in the first place.

A quotation from the article:

No sooner had Kant’s philosophy appeared then many objections were raised, among which were complaints about the apparently irreducible gap between the mind qua universal discursive intelligence and the mind as individual psychological reality.
I guess my question is: what gap?
