Watch the video interview: Often seen as a precursor to Marxists and existentialists, Hegel believed that knowledge is not static, but dynamic. In the Hegelian framework, history is a process in which many paradoxes interact and are then synthesized into a unified whole. Mobile UI Design Patterns: 10+ Sites for Inspiration By Jacob Gube User interface design patterns are solutions to common design challenges, such as navigating around an app, listing data or providing feedback to users.
