Hegel: The Phenomenology of Mind

Hegel and Napoelon in Jena. Harper's Magazine, via Wikisource.

The Phenomenology of Mind or Phenomenology of Spirit (German: Phänomenologie des Geistes),  originally published in 1807, was the first major philosophical work by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, and still the most influential.

Like much of Hegel's writing, it is notoriously difficult, but can be described as an account of the necessary steps in the development of thought. It's description of the relationship between self and other is significant for establishing the irreducibly social nature of consciousness.
