Correlation and Totality

  • Nathan Rotenstreich


Hegel’s well-known saying1 that mediation or detour is the way of the Spirit can be applied pointedly to the issue at hand — that the True is not substance but just as much subject.

    The preponderance of the essential element in the sum total of the correlation is stated by Karl Rosenkranz as follows: the categories of essence are concepts of reflection, that is to say, they can be thought as such without their opposites. See: Karl Rosenkranz, Metaphysik, Wissenschaft der Logik, 1. Teil, Königsberg, 1858, p. 279. Again, in emphasizing the primacy of substance Karl Rosenkranz observes that in German the term substance connotes the thing, die Sache. In the word Ursache (cause) that metaphysical character is even more prominent. Ibid., p. 453.Google Scholar
