Hegel'S theory of Intelligibility

University of Chicago Press

The book ends with a discussion of the three syllogisms of philosophy with which the Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences comes to a close. The Conclusion argues that the syllogisms of philosophy are three distinct combinations of logic, nature, and Geist. The combinations represent three distinct philosophical perspectives from which to understand the relation between logic, nature, and Geist. The syllogisms, however, also represent philosophical perspectives that allow a critical history of the development of a practice or institution, since they make possible different perspectives from which a normative commitment is assessed. The syllogisms make possible an assessment of the history of a normative commitment along with the awareness of the irreducible precariousness and ambivalence of any given commitment.

Keywords:   comprehension, absolute geist, syllogisms of philosophy, critical history
