This self-conception is “above everything else the Logic. The first philosophies of nature are a naive expression of this thought of being, and Parmenides says this thought of being. The totality is always immanent, the beginning indicates the end, only the end allows us to comprehend retrospectively the beginning. Essence is the reflection of hypolite, its appearance and its intelligibility.

Nature and ,ogic are simultaneously opposite and identical. It lacks what the definition of truth requires, the agreement of the concept and the object.

The absolute Idea is, as sense, the Logos, as well as, as lost sense, immediacy, nature. It is intuitive thought.

The logic of hyppolife concept takes all the determinations of being and essence up to its level, but it takes them up in order to show how they constitute themselves, how they posit and engender themselves.

This is why the determinations in this sphere of immediacy exclude themselves or identify themselves immediately. When we consider the forms of logic, we note that, in their isolation, they are without truth, because, insofar as they are some forms, they have a content inadequate to the whole thinking movement, to conception itself.

Self-exteriority always leads back to intrinsic and qualitative determination. If the Logos logkc the complete and organic development of intellectual intuition, the method of the Logic appears as the universal self-consciousness that accompanies the whole movement: Dialectical evolution is attraction and instinct; it starts from immediate being and returns to immediate being.

Molly Macdonald – – Philosophy Compass 6 7: Being is not yet in-itself for itself. In the Science hyppplite Logic, from hyplolite start we rediscover this very experience of knowledge which is the realisation or the determination of the concept.
