|Bubner I 61
Beginning/End/Hegel/Bubner: just like in a symphony the first note does not say that it is the beginning of a piece of music, the last note does not show that it is the end.
The determination of the beginning and the end of a systematically developed context always requires external mediation.
In Hegel, this mediation is done by Method Reflection.
The first insight concerns the unfoundedness of the assumption made in each case.
External Mediation/Hegel: for him the method reflection plays this role.
The assumption made in each case is unfounded!
Last chapter of logic: What is still to be considered here is not a content as such, but the general nature of its form, that is the method.
Content/Form/Generality/Hegel/Bubner: However, throughout the entire logic, Hegel emphasized that the content cannot be separated from the form.
The general nature of form must not be simply the form in which the concept with its manifold provisions was the content of the logical sciences.
On the contrary, the general formality is rather one which befits all those forms, under which the unified concept allowed for the topic of logic. ((s) Form of thought: is befitting). This generality then applies to only one position outside the logic.
An overview of the whole becomes possible as soon as the absolute immanence is abandoned, and you know that nothing is left out.
Beginning/End/Hegel: consequently, the beginning and the conclusion can only be established by a mediation which creates a transition between the systematic connection and the exterior.
Method/Science/Hegel/Bubner: where science is practiced there is no question of method, because the "thing itself" guarantees the law of action. (Unlike with the symphony). ((s) Thus there is no "inner necessity" (>Kandinsky) of art for Hegel.)_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
