Hegel: "Science of Logic," #9/10: Volume Two, Section Two: "Objectivity"­.

The ninth of ten (alternating) discussions on Hegel's (non-"lesser") "Science of Logic" (covering): 
(= "Section Two" of "Volume Two: Subjective Logic").

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. 705-754.

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..."

    I'm called away to find parts for a running toilet... Sorry to miss this. I plan to post some reflections on this section on the board this week.

      Looking forward to your help, Imran, in finishing this series of 10 sessions strong.
      Either way, I reckon ours will (like Spinal Tap's amplifier) "go to 11," if only in supplemental (i.e. festive but still relevant) fashion.

    I'm going still but will be coming straight from work in order to make it. In other words, I might be a lil late.

    For anyone who's ever wondered:

    "Since the end is the Notion that is posited as in its own self relating itself to objectivity and as sublating by its own act its defect of being subjective, the purposiveness which is at first external becomes, through the realization of the end, internal and the Idea."

      to paraphrase from another source: "to summarize in a sentence what he says in the book."

    There's a slight chance this will clash with work but hoping not. Really interested in the topic for this evening.
