Hegel’s Logic as Logic and as Metaphysics (Nick Stang)

The Logic and Metaphysics Workshop will meet on November 16th from 4:15-6:15 (NY time) via Zoom for a talk by Nick Stang (Toronto).

Title: Hegel’s Logic as Logic and as Metaphysics

Abstract: In the Encyclopaedia Logic Hegel claims that logic “coincides with” metaphysics (§24). In this talk, I will explain why Hegelian logic (the science of thinking) is identical with metaphysics (the science of being). Along the way, I will also shed light on two of the most obscure aspects of Hegel’s logic: that it involves “movement” and that this movement works by the identification, and resolution, of contradictions.
