Hegel never made any claim that he wanted to change the world. Hegelians since Hegel have been a different matter. This history is what makes the emancipatory project ascribed to Hegel by contemporary Hegelians such an interesting trajectory in continental theory and thought. For Hegel arguably did change something; a procedure for thinking and, perhaps even, action. A combination of thinking and thinking-in-action has seen Hegel resurrected in recent years and taken up by many who purport that Hegel silently, implicitly makes nudges towards emancipation and who is more than just the other-side to Kant.
