Hegel: Science of Logic; session #7: the end of "Essence" + intro to "Notion."

The Seventh of ten (alternating) discussions on Hegel's (non-"lesser") "Science of Logic" (covering from):

all of "Section Three:  Actuality" (= the last of "Book Two: The Doctrine of Essence," thereby concluding "Volume One: The Objective Logic);
(pp. [masked] in Miller);

through any of the opening pages to "Volume Two: Subjective Logic, or The Doctrine of the Notion" (which precede its "Section One: Subjectivity"): i.e.,
"Foreword" (pp. [masked] in Miller),
"The Notion in General" (pp. [masked] in Miller),
"Division" (pp. [masked] in Miller).

In short, in my old version (@ 1969  George Allen & Unwin ,  London),
translated by A.V. Miller and foreword-ed by J.N. Findlay,
this 7th dose amounts to pp. [masked].

In di Giovanni, this 7th dose amounts to pp. [masked] (#11.369-#12.30). 

For a friendly "description" I still 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..."

    For this weeks reading I'm shooting for the last section of Essence, and the introduction to Doctrine of Concept.

    I figure since we have 4 weeks left (including this one), and 4 sections left, we can just take one section a week until the end. Keep in mind that the 8th meeting's reading will be quite long.

      Sounds good to me.
      I'll adjust the description above.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
