German Idealism as Constructivism

University of Chicago Press

“Hegel, Identity and Constructivism,” the fifth chapter, examines the relationship of Hegel, beginning in the so-called Differenzschrift, his first philosophical publication, to Kant, Fichte and Schelling, his great idealist predecessors. I further discuss the emergence of Hegel’s constructivist theory of cognition in the Phenomenology as well as its application in his Philosophy of Nature. The chapter finally considers Hegel’s understanding of the link between dialectical logic and cognitive constructivism in both the smaller and greater Logics.

Keywords:   Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, identity, constructivism, Immanuel Kant, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, Friedrich Schelling, Phenomenology, Philosophy of Nature, Science of Logic
