Wilhelm Dilthey's Hegel as seen by György Lukács

Statue of György Lukács by Imre Varga in Budapest.
This post considers Hungarian critic György Lukács’ (1885-1971) reading of Wilhelm Dilthey on Hegel’s Frankfurt period. Lukács’ trenchant materialist analysis of Hegel is at odds with Dilthey’s predominantly religious interpretation, so his concessions to it are worth considering.
