Hegel's Mediated Immediacies

The Owl of Minerva 42 (1-2):153-217 (2010)
Dieter Henrich has presented persuasive evidence that Hegel’s logic does not, in practice, provide a linear deduction of logical categories, but rather borrows thought-forms proper to subsequent stages in order to effect its dialectical transitions. In reply, I argue that the presented order of the categories is already implicitly sublated by a deep structure of circularity that determines the development. Thus, Hegel’s dialectic is deliberately nonlinear in terms of both its content and its method. One can therefore acknowledge the astuteness of Henrich’s many insights without regarding them as telling criticisms of the system as Hegel intended it
