In his seminal Critique of Pure Reason, Kant constrained the application of categories of the Understanding to a domain of objects relative to subjectivity. Accordingly, for Kant, what applies to all categories applies to negation as well. Negation is a condition for the possibility of experience, whose only sound domain of application are objects of possible experience.

Along with J. Fichte and, at least in his early work, F. The most systematic of the post-Kantian idealists, Hegel attempted, throughout his published writings as well as in his lectures, to elaborate a comprehensive and systematic philosophy from a purportedly logical starting point. Until around , Hegel devoted himself to developing his ideas on religious and social themes, and seemed to have envisaged a future for himself as a type of modernising and reforming educator, in the image of figures of the German Enlightenment such as Lessing and Schiller. Fichte — In the s the University of Jena had become a center for the development of critical philosophy due to the presence of K. Reinhold — and then Fichte, who taught there from until his dismissal on the grounds of atheism at the end of the decade.
The historical dimension is here not simply the unending evolution of all life forms. The proper temporality of a human being is thus not that of the linear time, but that of engaged existence: a man projects his future and then actualizes it by way of a detour through past resources. No wonder then, that it was Heidegger himself who, in a series of seminars and written texts, proposed the most elaborate version of such a critical reading of Hegel. Why is Hegel unable to see the proper dimension of parousia? There nonetheless is a privileged phenomenal mode in which negativity can be experienced, although a negative one: pain. Lacan sees in this transcendental privilege of pain the link between Kant and Sade. This is why Heidegger misses the vertiginous abyss of the dialectical process: there is no standard of truth gradually approached through painful experiences; this standard itself is caught in the process, undermined again and again.
Hegel versus Heidegger

Providing a clear interpretation of Hegel's characterizations of possibility and actuality in the Science of Logic , this book departs from the standard understandings of these concepts to break new ground in Hegelian scholarship. The book draws out some of the implications of Hegel's view of immanent possibility, especially as it relates to Leibniz's thesis of modal optimism: his view that this world is the best of all possible worlds. Reading Hegel as a philosopher of possibility, against a tradition that has conceived of him primarily as a philosopher of necessity, rationality, and finitude, Nahum Brown demonstrates the historical background and philosophical traditions from which Hegel's concept of possibility emerges. Systematically outlining Hegel's conceptions of positive and negative freedom, Brown reveals the Hegelian underpinnings of our conception of reality and what it is to be in the world itself.
He is considered one of the fundamental figures of modern Western philosophy , with his influence extending to the entire range of contemporary philosophical issues, from aesthetics to ontology to politics , both in the analytic and continental tradition. Hegel's principal achievement was his development of a distinctive articulation of idealism , sometimes termed absolute idealism ,  in which the dualisms of, for instance, mind and nature and subject and object are overcome. His philosophy of spirit conceptually integrates psychology , the state , history , art , religion and philosophy. His master—slave dialectic has been influential, especially in 20th-century France. Hegel has been seen in the twentieth century as the originator of the thesis, antithesis, synthesis triad,  but as an explicit phrase it originated with Johann Gottlieb Fichte. Hegel has influenced many thinkers and writers whose own positions vary widely. Hegel's work has been considered the "completion of philosophy"    by multiple of the most influential thinkers in existentialism , post-structuralism , and twentieth-century theology.

Hegel on Possibility
Access options available:. Hegel's Science of Logic weds a deduction of broadly Kantian categories with a vindication of unconditional self-determination. Motivating his project is the challenge of nihilism implicit in Spinoza's rationalism-cum-naturalism. Section one of this paper examines Spinozist 'substance' and Hegel's revision of the principle omnis determinatio est negatio.
In this paper I will provide a reading of the relation between nature and spirit starting from an analysis of the movement of positing and presupposing , discussed by Hegel in the "Science of Logic" in his discussion of the transition between Being and Essence.

Бринкерхофф смотрел на массивную фигуру директора, возвышающуюся над письменным столом. Таким он его еще никогда не. Фонтейн, которого он знал, был внимателен к мелочам и требовал самой полной информации. Он всегда поощрял сотрудников к анализу и прояснению всяческих нестыковок в каждодневных делах, какими бы незначительными они ни казались. И вот теперь он требует, чтобы они проигнорировали целый ряд очень странных совпадений.
