In the “consisting in itself” of poetry and artworks there is an assertion which “stands” self-contained. Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2019, Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2018. Gadamer’s account of the dialectic suffers from “too literal” (p. 25) a reading of contradiction talk in Hegel, which construes him as committed to the existence of true contradictions, or dialetheias. The shining back of what shows itself — incidentally, a literal translation of “reflection “ — is certainly different from the original “clearing” in which what is comes to show itself in the first place. In the effort to derive the interrelationship of all categories from each other, a criterion is given in their determinacy per se. Though within this tendency towards “the logical” it is the concept which is thought of as the completed determination of the indeterminate, and though in that concept only the one aspect of language (its tendency towards “the logical”) is completely developed, reflection’s being or consisting in itself nevertheless continues to have a disconcerting similarity to the “consisting in itself” of the word and of the artwork which bear truth contained (geborgen) within themselves. If one traces the experience of consciousness in the way Hegel does in the Phenomenology, namely, in such a way that one learns to recognize everything alien as one’s own, one sees that the lesson actually taught to consciousness is none other than the experience which thinking has with its “pure” thoughts. In the Phenomenology the course and goal of the movement of thought is clear. Nevertheless, that which escapes this perspective of thought comes to light here — that which Schelling sensed first and which Heidegger developed into the question about the being which is not the being of existents. It went well, and I felt much more confident in talking about it than I thought I would be. Hegel appears as the logical consummation of a path of thought going back a long way — an end in which the subsequent philosophical phenomena of Marx and logical positivism are foreshadowed. Nevertheless one must concede to Hegel that Fichte, instead of really completing the introduction into the standpoint of the “Doctrine of Science” — that is, the elevation and purification of the empirical “I” to the transcendental “I” — actually only insisted upon it. It follows from this that a distinction must be made between the concepts as they operate in thought and the thematization of them. In The Phenomenology of Mind Hegel traced the stages of this manifestation from the simplest level of consciousness, through self-consciousness, to the advent of reason.  Lewis Edwin Hahn’s The Philosophy of Hans-Georg Gadamer, Chicago, Open Court, 1993 has a “Selected Gadamer Bibliography” with five sections.The second bibliography is a recently extended edition of Etsuro Makita’s excellent Gadamer Bibliographie, Frankfurt, Lang, 1995. The truth of the “I” is pure knowing. Gadamer also makes it a point to note that Edmund Husserl’s appeal to the “unity of a living organism,” as found in Husserliana VI, is intended to be more than a mere metaphor.14 Husserl (by Gadamer’s account) seeks to show that subjectivity should not be taken as the opposite of objectivity; Indeed, it is correct to say that it is open to us to see in Becoming something either coming into being or something passing away. The dialectic of the thing and its properties, in which consciousness is now about to get caught, looks like a new hypothesis which is richer in content and not a necessary consequence of what went before. By Coltman, Rodney R. Read preview. “One has acquired great insight when one realizes that being and not-being are abstractions without truth and that the first truth is Becoming alone” (XIII 306). Still, it is nothing less than the complete fathoming of an essential course of human thought when Hegel in “reflection in itself — thinks the light “shining back” which all objectification casts. VI, 1/2003, pp. Here nothing of the Phenomenology’s juxtaposition of belief and what is believed remains. The concepts of “being” and the concepts of “essence” are completed in the doctrine of the “concept.” Consequently what is realized there is a unity of thought and being which corresponds to Aristotle’s conception of the category, on the one hand, just as much as it does to Kant’s, on the other. The process of comprehension which aims nevertheless at eliminating this transcendence and which Hegel unfolds as the basic movement of self-recognition in the other, is for that reason continually thrown back on itself. For his part, Hegel will claim that his dialectic in the Logic meets the requirement of accounting for the rightness of each individual thought by explicating them all within a system.

Pippen intends to explore what Gadamer meant by: using hermeneutics to overcome, “ the primacy of self-consciousness.” Further, Pippen expresses that he believes that Gadamer’s starting point with this statement is Hegel—not Kant.… The dialectic of the new form of knowing, e.g., of perception of the thing, in which the implicit contradictions are exposed, has the appearance of being an arbitrary hypothesis. It is clear, for example, that one must always use the categories of Essence, e.g., the determinations of Reflection, if one wants to make any statement at all. The question of how movement gets into the Logic must be answered in reference to this beginning. Now it is clear, and Hegel makes use of the fact in his commentary, that it lies in the nature of any beginning to be dialectical. Hence, the first development is of the concepts, as they are “for us” in our reflection about them. Rather, it is much better described in terms of the being which Heidegger refers to as a “clearing.” A clearing, however, implies both something disclosed and something still enclosed. Accordingly, in the foundation provided for it in its first part, i.e., in the “logic” as the science of possible modes of being, we are concerned with the pure content of thoughts, with thoughts freed from any subjective opinionation of the one who thinks them. Clearly, the expression, “bursts forth,” is one carefully chosen to exclude any idea of mediation and transition. The actual beginning of the Logic consists of only a few lines, which, nevertheless, pose the essential problems of Hegelian logic: the beginning with the idea of Being, the identity of it with Nothing, and the synthesis of the two opposed ideas of Being and Nothing, called Becoming. That accounts for its insurmountable “transcendence” for thought, which in turn prevents us from being at home in it. Yale University Press (September 10, 1982), Gadamer's Meditation on Hegel's Absolute Spirit, Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2020. Here lies Hegel’s great relevance for today: the speculative statement is not so much a statement as it is language. In this respect, Gadamer is a student of Heidegger’s approach to the history of philosophy; Ricoeur a student of Hegel’s. Plato portrayed this art of pure thinking in his dramatization of Socrates’ discussions in which the logical consequences of each thought are pursued unerringly. In this there is the necessity of “science,” and it is the same in the Phenomenology as it is in the Logic. “Gadamer’s Hegel” by Robert B. Pippen The Cambridge Companion to Gadamer. The forms of the subject’s certainty given in the statements of art, religion, and philosophy, where the reservations of private belief no longer obtain, are therefore the highest shape spirit assumes. For this realm Hegel coins a new expression, typical of him, but which I have yet to find in anyone before him, namely, “the logical.” What he is characterizing here is the entire cosmos of ideas as Plato’s philosophy dialectically develops it. They balance each other out, as it were, insofar as there is in them no other determination than the directionality implied in “from-to,” which in turn is determined only by the difference in direction. That, however. The words which someone utters are tied to the continuum in which people come to understand each other, the continuum which determines the word to such an extent that it can even be “taken back.” Similarly, the speculative statement points to an entirety of truth, without being this entirety or stating it. I shall proceed then to the method of this Logic. A great primer for Hegel's thought, the author's hermeneutic method proves itself over and again throughout. Please try again. What Hegel claims for his logic, however, is methodologically much more rigorous. The thesis, then, might be an idea or a historical movement. Becoming thus leads to Existence. Still, there is something “systematic” implied here too since the One, which reality is, is developed in the Many which the thought of it contains. As it stands, his logic remains a grand realization of the goal of thinking “the logical” as the foundation of all objectification. . In the Logic a starting point is firmly established and then a methodological procedure entered upon in which the knowing subject no longer intrudes. Thirdly, I will examine somewhat more precisely the starting point of the Logic, one of the most discussed problems of Hegel’s philosophy. What we do have is more a kind of permanent turbulence since no idea can be valid by itself and since the contradictory result at which thought inevitably arrives calls forth new hypotheses. For in fact, no movement does get into Being. Gadamer's unique hermeneutic method will have a lasting effect on Hegel studies.
