The idea of progress only became fully thinkable with the French Revolution in history and German Idealism in philosophy.  Hegel was able to develop an explanatory relationship between progress in philosophy and progress in history.  By looking at Hegel, and looking at Kant and Marx, we will be able to see the basis of progress in philosophical truth and historical truth.  Progress must be defended against the pessimists.
