Derrida’s notion of differance, Deleuze’s logic of sense, and Foucault’s reconception of history all stem from this book. Being is its own question to itself.

The contradiction of this growth is its immanent intentionality; how can it grow? The Whole is indeed Singularity, but the authentic Singularity is only the Whole in the opening of its own development-the concrete universal-the understanding which is at the same time intuitive and discursive.

In relation to sense, essence is what being was in relation to essence. Micah rated it really liked hyppoliite Jan 11, But for whom is this in itself, determined as being, in itself? It interiorises itself just as, in knowledge, memory interiorises sensible intuition. To separate in this way the content as an alien being and seek hyppolige truth of such a content, while forgetting that truth is agreement, is to turn yyppolite content into an inconceivable content, into a soulless content, a senseless content.

Logic & Existence

Hegel, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich, — Contributions in logic. Not much more helpful than reading Hegel’s Lesser Logic. Click on image to existwnce. Iosune De rated it it was ok Jun 05, State University of New York Press, c As reflection opposed to immediacy, essence is the non-resolved contradiction.

Truth is, as Kant said, the agreement of knowledge with its object, and this definition has the greatest, or rather the highest value.


Existence and Predication From Aristotle to Frege. It is intuitive thought. Does not its beginning already contain implicitly all of what its end will be? Anellis – – Logica Universalis 6 To include a comma in your tag, surround the hyppklite with double quotes.

Its proof is the dialectic of being and sense that leads this end of Logic back to its beginning. In essence, being is existenve longer in the immediate form of being, as nothingness,–but in itself.

Finally, dialectic would show the inanity of pure knowledge as a whole; hence the transcendental dialectic of the Critique of Pure Reason. Jonatan rated it it was amazing Dec 24, Itai Farhi marked it as to-read Jun 09, Essence, moreover, is the non-resolved contradiction, since it is simultaneously negation of being and negation of this negation, but still abstract negativity, reduced to pure dialectical conflict.

Moreover, this distinction is arbitrary. It is the sole object and the logiic form of philosophy: The first term is always the universal as immediate, but then it is determined, and this determination is the negation which it has in itself. In effect, the absolute form is not contentless.

The dialectic would exhibit the non-existence of the object; thus the Eleatics deny change and movement through the dialectic.

Truth is truth only in its genesis.

Science of Logic a spirit which, in the highest degree, is precisely the Logos, philosophy. Logos, Nature, Spirit 4.

Forgetfulness and memory have an ontological signification. Sense is the essence that comprehends itself by positing itself as essence. The University of Melbourne Library. The Organization of the Logic: In the field of knowledge, forgetfulness and memory correspond to this dialectical distinction of being and sense, insofar as one does not make memory congeal into an in-itself this would be essence ; one has to see in memory the movement of recollection, the comprehensive genesis that constitutes the past.


Immediate being plunges into essence as into its conditions of intelligibility, but these conditions are unified with the manifestation itself.

Kant, however, stated jeaan principle of a priori synthesis in which duality could be known in unity. Absolute Knowledge as Identity and Contradiction: The method seeks, therefore, what one has hyppolitf add to this beginning, as if thought, which is thought and being, was not to itself its own content, as if its progression were not immanent.

It is the movement by which being negates itself, turns itself into appearance, and the movement by which, while negating itself, it posits itself, makes itself essence in appearance. Philosophy, however, is the highest-the only authentic-mode of grasping the absolute Idea, because its modality is the highest, the concept, the only one in which truth exists as truth.

The concept which completes itself with the absolute Idea re-establishes the immediate being of the beginning. Being was not reflecting itself.

It is the intelligibility of being, its in-itself for itself, but still in the element of the in-itself.
