Hegel distinguishes three types of self-knowledge: (1) One’s knowledge of one’s own individual characteristics. (2) ‘Understanding of human nature’ (Menschenkenntnis)—the sort of knowledge displayed by novelists and in practical dealings with others. ’. (1) and (2) are knowledge of what is ‘particular’, that is, of features peculiar to one person or to some people, while (3) is knowledge of the ‘universal’, of ‘man as such’. To pursue (1) or (2) to the neglect of (3) is like, say, acquiring a knowledge of the stylistic peculiarities of a particular German writer, or of various types of writer, without a grasp of the structure and grammar of the German language as such, when it is this underlying structure that makes possible the various peculiarities.

There is therefore a peculiar affinity between Christianity and philosophy. Both are concerned with mind as such and are presented to mind as such, to everyone. But there is a difference. Christianity tells a story about God, who is himself a mind distinct from any human mind. He then generates a son, who is again a mind. And when, after his death and resurrection, the son has returned to God, another mind descends on humanity, the holy ‘spirit’. Philosophy is grateful for this story, but does not take it literally.
