Our discussion thus far has centred on an immanent analysis of the Phänomenologie, as an appearing system, and the system itself, in order to demonstrate that the determination of their content presupposes the necessities of philosophic presentation. However such an analysis cannot elucidate the sense in which presentation is the original ground of both the system and its appearances, and how this differentiation of modes is related to the exigencies of the absolute idea. This is the task that lays before us now, — that of uncovering the identity of the Phänomenologie and the system in speculative presentation.

    G.R.G Mure remarks, quite appropriately, that“The reflective historian interprets the accumulated record of the past, but anachronistically. The philosopher interprets the past as a process sublated in result, and so as a present which is in a sense timeless, but not as a present in which the future, too, is sublated”. The Philosophy of Hegel ( Oxford University Press. London. 1965 ), p. 183.Google Scholar
