Strawson V 187
Substance/StrawsonVsKant: it is wrong, to conclude an underlying substance from the variability of the things - even according to his own principles - because if it should be a condition of experience, then it is circlular.
Holz I 31
Substance/Spinoza: is according to him unique in its very nature, infinite, and indivisible.
Substance/HegelVsSpinoza: whoever starts from the thinking conditions of the substantial unity of the world and the experience conditions of the qualitative difference of beings (of manifoldness) can conceive this manifoldness only as manifestations or aspects of the one substance in which "all that one had thought to be true, has perished".
This, however, reveals the actual thinking condition, the difference in the content of thought. Leibniz saw the danger.
I 32
Hegel: one must not "let the multiplicity disappear in the unity".
If deduction is only possible as a reduction (as in Spinoza), this would be the self-abolition of the world in thought.
Kant draws from this the consequence of establishing the unity of the world in the priority of thinking. The unity is then only transcendental or subjectively idealistic justified.
HegelVsKant: tries to renew the metaphysics of substance, which wants to establish the unity of existence in the unity of a being: the self-development of the absolute mind in world history.
