The Idea of Hegel's "Science of Logic"

Stanley Rosen

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s claim at the end of book 2 of the Science of Logic that the particular, as the identity of universality and individuality, is the concept, “the domain of subjectivity or of freedom.” It analyzes what Hegel means by this statement in terms of conceptual thinking, specifically his argument that being and thinking are the same from the outset with respect to their form or structure of intelligibility. It also considers the Hegelian conception of the absolute and substance as subject before turning to an overview of book 3 of the Science of Logic. In particular, it discusses Hegel’s “objective” logic and its relation to the categorial structure of actuality, his assertion that the Concept is the absolute foundation or subjective presupposition, and the distinction between cognition and sensation. The chapter concludes by commenting on Hegel’s distinction of unity from difference or determination.

Keywords:   logic, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Science of Logic, concept, being, thinking, absolute, substance, actuality, cognition
