Conceptualizing Thought

  • Allegra de Laurentiis


The Science of Logic, as announced in the Preliminary Conception of the Encyclopaedia, has the movement of pure, that is, free thinking, for its content:

In the Logic, thoughts are grasped in such a way that they have no content other than one that belongs to thinking itself, and is brought forth by thinking. So these thoughts are pure thoughts. Spirit is here purely at home with itself, and thereby free, for that is just what freedom is: being at home with oneself in one’s other, depending upon oneself, and being one’s own determinant.1
