It is the pure jeab in which difference the one that will be set free in external nature and in finite spirit is the alterity that leads thought to sublate itself. The idea, however, in Hegel, is truly an idea, sense, while, in Bergson, it is this side of or beyond sense.

Being is reflected in itself, and, in this reflection, it is as sense.

Thus the conflict of being and nothingness exhausts itself in the instability of becoming, but hyppolire has become, the being there, is a new immediateness. Hegelian logic does not start from two alien terms that it would combine, but from mediation.

Its self-determination is the judgment that reproduces at the level of the concept the diremption of essence, the appearance of the particular in the universal, and of the universal in the particular.

Infinity is also there immediately; it is the bad infinite, the indefinite series of a something and its other.

It is like a second being behind the first, but when we no longer abstract from its position, when we comprehend it as self-positing, as self-constituting, then it is no longer essence but sense.

In the Jsan Logos, genesis is comprehensive genesis; being comprehends itself and comprehends itself as far as the ontic limits of all comprehension. The logic of being corresponds to the transcendental aesthetic. The absolute concept the unique formtherefore, must rediscover itself in all of its moments, in the forms which, insofar as xnd are manifold, present themselves as content.

This first English translation illuminates Hegelianism’s most obscure dialectical synthesis: The Categories of the Absolute. The logic of the concept corresponds to the major turn that transcendental logic represents in the history of philosophy.

When we consider the forms of logic, we note that, in their isolation, they are without truth, because, insofar as they are some forms, they have a content inadequate to the whole thinking movement, to conception itself. Being, Essence, Concept constitute the three instincts of the Logos, the three circles which reproduce at different levels the same fundamental theme.

But in this case, what are we to think of Kantianism, according to which the knowledge of reason is incapable of grasping things in themselves, and actuality is alien to the concept? English Author Hyppolite, Jean. Essence is the dialectical moment of this alienation of being.

Between Philosophy and Non-Philosophy. Somehow, the process gets congealed. The Logic is opposed to experience as ontology is opposed hylpolite anthropology.

It understands abstraction as the psychological process which, having at first put aside exiwtence from which it is abstracted, claims to be made complete through that from which it is abstracted.

These two aspects of the logic of essence-namely, immediate being negates itself and therefore posits itself behind itself fundamentally as essence, and immediate being, negating itself, has become appearance-are one and the same movement.
