(p.465) Twenty-One The Idea
The Idea of Hegel's "Science of Logic"

Stanley Rosen

University of Chicago Press

This book has articulated the structure of becoming based on Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s arguments in his Science of Logic. It has also looked at Hegel’s explanation about the contradiction between essence and accident, appearance and reality, phenomenon and noumenon, law and instance, or form and content, in the context of becoming. In this chapter, Hegel’s notion of the idea is discussed. In particular, the chapter examines the idea as the actualization of reason understood as both subject and object. It also considers Hegel’s three definitions of the idea: the idea as the simple truth and life as the universal medium of the idea, the idea as soul, and the idea as absolute truth.

Keywords:   becoming, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Science of Logic, essence, appearance, idea, reason, truth, life, soul
