Chapter Summary

The Logic is made up of three sections: The science of Being , the science of Essence and the science of the Notion . The structure of the Logic is important if we are to understand the process of finding the starting point for a science , and how that differs from the development of the science itself. The science of Being is ontology , which normally means the study of the various kinds of thing which can exist and the nature of existence. Hegel replaced ontology with Logic, making a critique of the concept of Being the first section of the Logic. All Hegel's major works have the same structure: the simple concept or notion which marks the unconditioned starting point for the given science, arises as the truth of another science which has burst through its own limits.
