Hegel: "Science of Logic"

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."

J.N. Findlay:
"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."

Etienne Gilson:
"Hegel was not a philosopher;  he was a world, a self-creating world..."

      I'm off-line til Wednesday, 7/2, so if someone would update the page for me (based on progress made during our last session) I'd be grateful. I expect to catch up on reading by 7/9 (, not to mention attend).

    "Essence is the movement from Nothing to Nothing and through Nothing back to itself." - Hegel, from "The Doctrine of Essence"

    "Quite making such a big deal over nothing" - Hegel's mom

    I think the reading is something like chapters 2 and 3 of Book 2 section 1

      I think we did the first section of Essence. Aren't we on the second now?

      Alright. We didn't talk too much about the last two chapters, though. Might have a lot of catch up for this next meet.
