Example text

Elevates, it by spiritualizing it. This corresponds to ‘sublation in §381, n. 14. The I proves or ‘authenticates’ its differentiated ‘being-together-with-itself ’ (of stage (1) ) by sublating the ‘manifold material’ (at stage (2) ) and by remaining simple and self-aware throughout the ‘multiplicity’ that it ‘pervades’. 16. Mind is as yet still ‘finite’. (See §386 and Z. ) Objective as well as subjective mind is finite. But here Hegel is thinking especially of subjective mind. This is made to sound unsatisfactory by speaking of its ‘representational activity’ and by the suggestion that mind simply transposes things from outside into its inner ‘space’, where they remain as diverse and unorganized as they were in external space.

The forces or faculties of empirical psychology are distinct from, and thus bounded by, each other. A category of the intellect, such as simplicity, is bounded by its opposite, complexity. The selfcontained essence of the mind and the mind’s appearances, as they are conceived by rational psychology, bound each other. The mind itself transcends these boundaries, and so does speculative philosophy. In doing so, they are ‘infinite’: cf. §386, n. 1. 5. Christian Wolff (1679–1754) is for Hegel the paradigmatic practitioner of ‘reflective thinking’, which sharply separates concepts from each other.

Aristotle drew no distinction between philosophy and empirical science. His de anima combines both types of inquiry. ’. In German, as in English, it often refers to risky financial dealings and also to bold conjectures. In medieval philosophers speculativus often means ‘theoretical’ in contrast to ‘practical’. Hegel applies it to his preferred philosophical method. It retains a suggestion of boldness, but no hint of the conjectural. It contrasts with the merely empirical, with the cut-and-dried thinking of Verstand, and with merely sceptical, ‘negative’ dialectic that advances to no positive conclusion.
