Logic and Existence, which originally appeared incompletes the project Hyppolite began with Genesis and Structure of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.

Logic and Existence (Series in Contemporary Continental Philosophy)

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. The possible, which is only possible, is impossible; it contradicts itself. It is the movement by which being negates itself, turns itself into appearance, and the movement by anv, while negating itself, it posits itself, makes itself essence in appearance.

Isn’t the immediate being at the beginning already the absolute Idea of the end? In order to be comprehended, in order to existencce posited, being alienates itself. The being of the sensible is its annihilation; it passes away However it returns in its annihilation. These essentialities are constitutive of reflection. Existence and Free Logic.

These sciences are not the empirical sciences considered in the Phenomenology: Indefinite progression, however, what is without end, is the immediate difference which is not reflected as identity, as self-relation. We can still ajd that being divides itself into being and nothingness and hypplite itself then as becoming. Dialectic responds to dialectic; Socrates indulges in an ironic dialectic in order to oppose the unstable dialectic of the Sophists. German Idealism in European Philosophy categorize this paper.


He himself becomes the victim of this dialectic, of the anger gyppolite against it; he is accused of disturbing the stable positions of ethics. Contradiction and identity are there immediately just as they exist in nature with movement.

Infinity is also there immediately; it is the bad infinite, the indefinite series of a something and its other.

Being no longer passes indefinitely outside of itself; it passes into itself, it reflects itself. Account Options Sign in. 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 ezistence a subjectivity distinct from being.

Immediate being, negated in its totality, becoming its own nothingness, is essence.

Logic and Exisstence, which originally appeared incompletes the project Hyppolite began with Genesis and Structure of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. Some xeistence, 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 concept is at first the medium of sense in general, the medium of every comprehensive genesis.

Find it on Scholar. Bobby George rated it it was amazing Jul 22, This “to contain,” however, has nothing spatial about it. Gabriel Aguilar marked it as to-read Nov 30, The beginning is immediacy, but its determination, its negation is there; its self-relation is not yet the unity that has become, the posited relation. Matt Giles rated it really liked it Mar 14, Method is conceived through the Logic’s notion of the beginning, which must be presuppositionless.

To say that the Absolute is being is to say that it is in itself. Essence is the negation-the first-of being, and of being in its totality such as it is presented in the prior sphere. This genesis resembles an organic growth, a perpetual reproduction and self-amplification. It depends on a third term, and is relative to an external reflection.
