G.W.F. Hegel on Sentences - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 470
Sentence/Predication/Speculation/Judgement/Hegel/Gadamer: Hegel described the speculative relationship of thought in his masterful analysis of the logic of the philosophical proposition(1). He shows that the philosophical proposition is a judgement only in its external form, i.e. it attaches a predicate to a subject concept. In truth, the philosophical proposition does not pass from the concept of subject to another concept that is related to it, but it pronounces the truth of the subject in the form of the predicate.
>Speculative Philosophy/Hegel
For example, "God is One" does not mean that it is an attribute of God to be One, but that it is the essence of God to be unity.
>Predication, >Properties, >Ascription, >Unity, >Adjectives, >Predicates, >Existence predicate.
Gadamer I 471
Hegel describes the floating biposity of the philosophical proposition, which comes about through the counter-attack, by the witty comparison with the rhythm, which similarly arises from the two moments of the metre and the accent as their floating harmony.(2)
