G.W.F. Hegel on Thinking - Dictionary of Arguments
Gadamer I 472
Thinking/Hegel/Gadamer: The abolition of the difference between speculative and dialectical, which we find in Hegel's speculative science of the term, shows how much he knows himself to be the perfecter of Greek logos philosophy. >Speculation/Hegel, >Dialectic/Hegel.
Dialectic: What he calls dialectic and what Plato called dialectic is based on the subjugation of language to the "statement".
Statement: But the concept of statement, the dialectical intensification of the contradiction, is now in extreme contrast to the nature of hermeneutic experience and the linguistic nature of human experience of the world in general. Admittedly, Hegel's dialectic also actually follows the speculative spirit of language. But according to Hegel's self-understanding, he only wants to listen to language's reflective play of its thought determinations and raise thinking to the self-consciousness of the concept by means of dialectical mediation in the totality of known knowledge. >Speculation/Hegel, >Concept/Hegel.
GadamerVsHegel: Thus it remains in the dimension of what has been said and does not reach the dimension of linguistic world experience._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
