In the Science of Logic, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel relates the transition from subjectivity to objectivity to the ontological proof for the existence of God. The traditional ontological argument neither views man as God nor equates human thought with the thinking of God, an assumption made by Hegel about the Science of Logic. This chapter examines Hegel’s logic on objectivity, particularly his assertion that the shift from the concept of God to his existence does not appear to be the same as that from the concept into objectivity, but that the logical process is indifferent to the content. It also discusses the Hegelian perspective about immediacy, the distinction between objectivity and subjectivity, and mechanism and chemism.
