Summary

A truly self-standing science grasps not only its subject matter but also itself. As we saw in earlier chapters, formal logic, both in Aristotle and in Kant, does not meet this standard, according to Hegel. It has presuppositions, chief among them psychological ones, it cannot itself validate. This chapter interprets the final sections of Hegel's logic as resolving this problem of self-comrpehension and explains how it concludes Hegel's struggle to overcome the logocentric predicament.
