The purpose of the essay is to offer a close reading of Hegel's account of the Fall along theologically orthodox lines. To this extent I am more in agreement with traditional readers of Hegel like Peter Hodgson, and more recently theologians like Graham Ward and Nicholas Adams who wish to bring Hegel closer to a 'generous orthodoxy' (Ward, p. 290) in order to open up the possibility of appropriating elements of the Hegelian project for the purposes of Christian theology and philosophy. In so far as I will argue for an orthodox reading of the Fall in the Encyclopaedia Logic, I will nevertheless try to show how this more or less theologically traditional reading of a religious account in Hegel engenders a sophisticated and in many ways novel meta-philosophical argument for the foundations of philosophy grounded in the features of human thought which participates in divine thought.
