The sixth of ten (alternating) discussions on Hegel's (non-"lesser") "Science of Logic" (covering from):
his "Preface to the First Edition"
through the opening of "Book One: Doctrine of Being; Section One: Determinateness (Quality)."
In my old version (@ 1969 George Allen & Unwin , London),
translated by A.V. Miller and foreword-ed by J.N. Findlay,
this first dose amounts to pp. 25-81.
For a friendly "description" I pilfer from others more concise (not to mention credible):
Mr. G.R.G. Mure:
"...philosophy is no more the exclusive business of professionals than is art or religion."
"Hegel will appear as the greatest of European thinkers, engaged in a self-critical enterprise which even he only half understood, whose most obscure, botched utterances are often worth many of the lucidities of modern philosophers."
"Hegel was not a philosopher; he was a world, a self-creating world..."
