After leaving college he became a tutor, which allowed him time for his private studies. After several years as a lecturer he was appointed professor at Jena in 1805. Two years later he published the first of his major works, the Phaenomenologie des Geistes (The Phenomenology of Mind). After a short time as newspaper editor and several years teaching philosophy at a gymnasium in Nuremberg, he was offered and became chair of philosophy at the University of Berlin. He is regarded as having an important influence on German idealism and Western philosophy.
