The Beginning of Logical Science

(p.69) Four The Beginning of Logical Science
The Idea of Hegel's "Science of Logic"
Stanley Rosen
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the difference between subjective and objective logic, as well as the notion that the science of logic is devoid of presupposition. To this end, the details of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s logic as he explains in detail in his Science of Logic are discussed. It first considers Hegel’s claim that to speak of beings that are cognized as they exist independently of cognition is to contradict oneself, and how this contradiction of the natural consciousness leads to the development of dialectical logic. The chapter then restates the development leading up to the science of logic, the concept of experience in the context of traditional rationalism, and Hegel’s view of essence as appearance and vice versa. The chapter concludes by analyzing Hegel’s preliminary sketch of the universal division of the treatment of being.

Keywords:   logic, science, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Science of Logic, cognition, experience, rationalism, essence, appearance, being
