Sample text

At 44; HARRIS, LOGIC, supra note 14, at 37 ("it has two main characteristics, which are intimately connected with each other, abstraction and sharp, rigid distinction"). I do not see Understanding's initial function as connected with distinction. Understanding is the move that accepts self-identity. Difference is the hallmark of Dialectical Reason. The Understanding, after all, proposes a self-identical theory of the Absolute. But it will develop as the SL progresses. Eventually, the Understanding will resemble Dialectical Reason, which does makes distinctions.

48 This difference is expressed as [7]. 49 Speculative Reason, working only with the materials implied by the extremes, produces a new middle term. 50 This dualism is the subject matter of Chapter 2. In terms of our Borromean Knot, the middle term is both dynamic [4, 5, 6] and static [7]. When we consider the parts [4, 5, 6], it is dynamic - a ceaseless modulation of birth and death. When we consider the dynamic modulation as such, we "name" the activity and thereby add a static dimension to the dynamic parts.

96 See DESMOND, supra note 69, at 122 ("thought not concrete is not thought at all"). 95 Being-Nothing-Becoming 39 The ego always faces an other. Because it is always correlative to some object, it cannot serve as a beginning. It is not simple enough. To conclude, the essay With What Must Science Begin? yields three lessons worth remembering. (1) The SL is to be a groundless logic, utterly free of presupposition. (2) Deciding to begin at all is a contingent fact. (3) Given that we have chosen to begin, Pure Being is the best starting place, because it develops into the ultimate result Absolute Knowing - which then mediates the beginning.
