This absolute Idea, which in the element of universality contains the whole life of thought, for Hegel, “alone is being, imperishable life, self-knowing truth, and is all truth” Science of Logic Logic is not concrete truth, that of the Idea in nature or in spirit, but the pure truth, the development of the concept in its actuality and of actuality in its concept, the life of the concept.

Some indeed, however, have also said that the immense richness of Hegel’s Logic comes from what he borrows from all the experiences of the concrete sciences, and that his Logic conceals a thoroughgoing empiricism. The Logos’s three moments are contained in this German word: Refresh and try again.

The Logos is not the possibility of the existent, outside of the existent; it is the conception of the existent, and existnce existent as other is included in its own conception.

In the Science of Logic, from the start we rediscover this very experience of knowledge which is the realisation or the determination of the concept. But it is also to negate the being in it, because one must say that appearance is not since it hypoplite merely appearance. Being, considered as irreducible to pure thought, is the absolute self-relation which is also pure thought.

If the Logos is the complete and organic development of intellectual intuition, the method of the Logic appears as the universal self-consciousness that accompanies the whole movement: It contradicts itself in itself. Immediate being plunges into essence as into its conditions of intelligibility, but these conditions are unified with the manifestation itself.

Reflectionwhich results in the ground; Phenomenonwhich is being negated and jyppolite Actualitywhich is the unity of ground and phenomenon, of essence and appearance.

Empirical Proposition and Speculative Proposition 2. Hegelian logic does not start from two alien terms that it would combine, but from mediation. Logic and Existence, which originally appeared incompletes the project Hyppolite began with Genesis and Structure of Existennce Phenomenology of Spirit.
