These considerations and constraints serve to structure the reflections that Hegel seeks to promote and facilitate with his phenomenological method. These constraints also provide a set of determinate criteria for assessing forms of consciousness. 13 For us, Hegel's readers, to learn from his phenomenological examination of the self-critical assessment of forms of consciousness, we must assess his characterization and presentation of each form of consciousness, and we must assess what can and ought to be learned from each form of consciousness, even or especially when that form of consciousness may happen not to learn what it could have learned about the character and scope of human empirical knowledge.

There is more to this key parallel . Within any chapter of Hegel' s Phe nomenology, the development of one form of consciousness typically runs through three phases . A form of consciousness' initial certainty generates difficulties in the frrst phase. These lead it to refine, qualify, and shift its main principles (its "certainty") for the second phase, though its revised view again generates difficulties . The third phase then considers the most sophisticated and adequate version of this form of consciousness and again purports to generate difficulties within it.
