Abstract

J S P RAJESH SAMPATH University of California Philosophy is the liberation of spirit from the insufficiency and one-sidedness of all forms of life; in passing beyond them, they are nevertheless preserved and grounded. The whole is the whole of movements maintaining its concrete identity in all its passages. --Hegel, Encyclopaedia 284 [T]hough ordinary thinking everywhere has contradiction for its content, it does not become aware of it, but remains an external reflection which passes from likeness to unlikeness, or from the negative relation to the reflection-into-self, of the distinct sides. It holds these two determinations over against one another and has in mind only them, but not their transition, which is the essential point and which contains the contradiction. Intelligent reflection, to mention this here, consists, on the contrary, in grasping and asserting contradiction. Even though it does not express the Notion of things and their relationships and has for its material and content only the determinations of ordinary thinking, it does bring these into a relation that contains their contradiction and allows their Notion to show or shine through the contradiction. Thinking reason, however, sharpens, so to say, the blunt The Journal of Speculative Philosophy, Vol.
