Finally, the logic of the concept corresponds to the transcendental dialectic, the Idea that Kant had considered only as regulative, wanting to recognise as metaphysics only the old dogmatism, the metaphysics of the intelligible world, and not explicitly comprehending that transcendental logic was in itself already speculative logic, that the logicity of being was replacing the being of logic.

Jason is currently reading it Sep 08, If the method, however, remains at the level of this subjective consciousness, it takes this beginning merely as the abstract from which something is lacking. The ordinary sense of the word method, however, is no longer at work here and one has to dispel a false interpretation.

For example, the affirmative Judgment is considered in its form as true, since it is referred exclusively to the content. Sense is not only its own object, it is also the sublated object. However, the sphere of being will have to be completely negated as the sphere of immediacy so that essence appears. Being is its own self-comprehension, its own sense, and the Logos is being positing itself as sense. David Balfour rated it it was amazing Jun 28, Their synthesis, measure, is the transition from being to essence.

Amit Sen is a doctoral student at the University of Memphis. This is not sensible immediacy, but the immediacy of pure thought “that we can, if you like, just as well call super-sensible or inner intuition.

The question of truth was really posed in a much more penetrating way by Kant with his notion of an a priori synthetic thought, that is, with his notion of a thought capable of being its content for itself: Hyppolite’s work displays the originality of Hegel’s thought in a new way, and sets up the means by which to escape hyppolit it. Phillip marked it as to-read Logid 22, This collapse of the sensible is the condition of its intelligibility, of its own recollection.


Hyppolite’s work displays the originality of Hegel’s thought in a new way, and sets up the means by which to escape from it. Hegel calls this logic of concept or sense subjective logic, but what is at issue is the subject or self which is immanent to every object and not a subjectivity distinct from being.

It is the being which is its self-consciousness, its sense, and this self-consciousness, in turn, is being itself, the absolute Idea scattered into nature and into history. In the Science of Logic, from the start we rediscover this very experience of knowledge which is the realisation or the determination of the concept.

Essence is the division of being in itself, the secret of being and the initiation into this secret, but this secret is its intelligibility, its conceivability. Quality is the immediate determination which is unified with being, while quantity marks a return to the first indetermination.

Taking up successively the role of language, reflection, and categories in Hegel’s Science of Logic, Hyppolite illuminates Hegelianism’s most obscure dialectical synthesis: Some indeed, however, have also said that the immense richness of Hegel’s Logic comes from what he borrows from all the experiences of the concrete sciences, and that his Logic conceals a thoroughgoing empiricism. The distinction between the essential and the inessential is, at the level of essence, only a reminiscence of immediacy, because there hyppolit not two beings.

Reflection negates itself; being as conception of being, essence of being, is not distinct from being itself, the ontological possibility of actuality. Pranon marked it as to-read Jun 24, No trivia or quizzes yet. Tim marked it as to-read Oct 30, My library Help Advanced Book Search.


Logic & Existence

Hegelian logic does not start from two alien terms that it would combine, but from mediation. But it is also to negate the being in it, because one must say that appearance is not since it is merely appearance. Anellis – – Logica Hyppooite 6 The Whole is indeed Singularity, but the authentic Singularity is only the Whole in the opening of its own development-the concrete universal-the understanding which is at the same time intuitive and discursive. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

It is at first the other, the negation of the first; but, taken by itself, it re-establishes the first.

Truth is truth only in its genesis. Isn’t the immediate being at the beginning already the absolute Idea of the end? In relation to sense, essence is what being was in relation to essence. Taking up successively the role logiic language, reflection, and categories in Hegel’s Science of Logic, Hyppolite illuminates Hegelianism’s most obscure dialectical synthesis: It is the pure thought in which difference the one that will be set free in external nature and in finite spirit is the alterity that leads thought to sublate itself.

The logic of being is the logic of immediacy. This being was in itself identical to itself in its opposite, nothingness.

The Organization of the Logic: It is there immediately as nature and as finite spirit, but as hhyppolite it completes itself, it returns to itself. Hegel, Peirce, and Royce on the Concept of Essence. This absolute Idea, which in the exstence of universality contains the whole life of thought, for Hegel, “alone is being, imperishable life, self-knowing truth, and is all truth” Science of Logic This first English translation illuminates Hegelianism’s most obscure dialectical synthesis: Selbstbewusstsein-beingappearance, the self.
