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. 529-598.

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..."
