Chapter Summary

Hegel wrote a long time ago, and his views on society and nature, even the history of philosophy are somewhat dated. However, by its very nature, the Logic has little recognizably empirical content and as a consequence it has stood. In the section of the Science of Logic entitled With What must Science Begin?, Hegel explains that philosophy must make a logical beginning, without any presuppositions, but at the same time, he says that it is mediated, having as its presupposition the science of manifested spirit, that is, The Phenomenology&t;. The Logic presupposes the Phenomenology which represents the movement of consciousness from ordinary, unreflective consciousness to philosophical consciousness. The Logic therefore suggests not only the dynamics of forms of consciousness, but a methodology for the development of a science, according to the nature of the thing itself, as opposed to a logic imposed on a sphere of knowledge from without.

Keywords: Hegel; phenomenology; philosophical conciousness; science of logic
