The established order is not considered as something supreme; rather it is the change that receives this attribute. A determination appears in humans, it is a true ability to become better, a pulse to the perfectibility. This is without purpose or end, it is indefinable because quite undetermined. The principle of evolution has a specific meaning: it implies that there is at the basis of evolution an existing internal layout itself which is realized in the existence of which the mind is the absolute key. This realization is done with the awareness and the will that is of infinite power and wealth. It goes through a hard struggle of the spirit against himself because he wants to reach his own concept but he hides it in a self-alienation. In nature change is a repetition of the same but it is otherwise with the spiritual forms since it operates in the concept that is rectified. In mind, each change is progress, world history is usually the explanation of the mind in time, as the idea is explicit in space like in nature. One of the definitions of this progress is that it is a succession of stages of consciousness.

There are four periods of history focusing on the evolution of the principle whose content is the consciousness of freedom. Such determination shall be given by the logic as to its general nature, and the philosophy of mind as to his real character. In the first stage, the features are found in the eastern world, the spirit is embedded in the naturalness and exists only as a non-free singularity. The second is where the mind partially out of that first state and reaches the consciousness of freedom, see the Greek world. The third time is the elevation of this freedom, yet special, to pure universality, this world is the Roman world. In the last stage, the mind is reconciled with the concept, then we are in the Christian world.

[...] As a country of the future where the gravity of world history may be manifested in the antagonism of North America with South America, only to be taken into account its external relation to the Europe and we must focus our interest on the Old World, which is the scene of world history. It is divided into three parts and is spiritual difference is its foundation. They are organized around the privileged communication center that is the Mediterranean Sea. Africa is generally the country folded on itself and persisting in the main character of concentration on oneself. [...]

[...] The evolution in history through a people qu'exhume needs to know something new. Thus performs better and more universal representation of itself, exceeded its own principle. In the history of a people can overcome only once because in the process of the Spirit a people can handle only one task always with the aim of returning to itself. This trend is also reflected in the religion whose purpose is to honor God and glorify the truth since the mind also gets its share by the knowledge that his action in honor of God is the absolute action. [...]

[...] the man is represented in Africa as the supreme power and the religious principle of Africans can be summed up in the phrase of Herodotus The second time they" 'In Africa, all men are magicians religion "is their tend to make their power an object of external representation to their conscience and give it a face, the fetish, which remains a mere creature that expresses the arbitrariness of the creator and is still in his hands. their power over nature is only a imaginary domination. Africans have a total disregard for the man, who could lead them to cannibalism, and life. [...]

[...] We now observe the course of the evolution of history without taking the path of a historical formalism. The spheres that are not affected by the experience of reason are a common element of all substantial differences. Generally, people not involved in the story in that it identified its nature and its fundamental purpose, with a universal principle, only then his work as an ethical and political body. The objectivity of a work is the fact that it is knowable. [...]
