Geist (German): indwelling spirit of man; guiding mind or conscious intelligence. In the philosophy of Georg Hegel (1770-1831), only Geist - not matter - is reality. Hegel believed that Geist revealed to him the "truths" which he spoke and which became the official doctrines of the Prussian state and universities.[1]
