I am not talking about the criticisms from positivists who were generally against metaphysics and non-empirical claims, but criticisms from other metaphysicists and philosophers. I heard Hegel's phenomenology wasn't particularly well received and was curious about the specific philosophical reasons for it.

  • You "heard" where, in what context? There are to many ways to pick a bone with Hegel to cover them all here. – Conifold Feb 24 '19 at 8:14

    As background: the split in the Hegelian school after Hegel's death: link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-94-010-1067-2_4 I also include this so you can get an idea of all the research that continues on Hegel, and German philosophy leading up to Kant and Hegel and afterwards. I was surprised myself. hegelpd.it/hegel/category/calls – Gordon Feb 24 '19 at 14:51

    I did not know about Bachmann myself until you asked this question. Apparently he did a review of the Phenomenology in 1810, though I have never seen this review. I don't mean to suggest that Bachmann himself was a Young or Left Hegelian, but his book "Anti-Hegel" seemed to at least provide food for thought for Feuerbach. – Gordon Feb 24 '19 at 17:30
