An Interpretation of the Logic of Hegel by Errol E. Harris

By Errol E. Harris

From the Preface:
The objective of this observation is to render Hegel’s good judgment intelligible to the uninitiated and to dispel the various misconceptions that have amassed round it and round Hegel's philosophy as a rule. No try out has been made to track traditionally the improvement of the good judgment via its a variety of types, or to provide a biographical account of Hegel’s philosophical improvement. This has been performed via different writers with whom i've got no wish to compete. My item has been in basic terms to know the kernel of Hegel’s suggestion and to penetrate, as far as i will, the obscurities of his writing, in addition to, the place important and manageable, to provide an explanation for and type out a few obvious anomalies within the association of the fabric.

141 states, is a fact and it would seem to be just this “facticity” that allows it to portray. Now clearly Wittgenstein is here implicitly challenging Frege’s assimilation of a proposition to a name, as is often noted:21 propositions as pictorial facts must be sharply distinguished from names, which, as analogues to the pictorial elements, serve only as proxies for objects. But it is essential to understand the real purpose of Wittgenstein’s attack on the Fregean conception. For the temptation amongst commentators is to suggest, even while pointing out Wittgenstein’s difference with Frege, that the Tractatus is here ultimately concerned with the problem of how some particular picture fact can be connected with the appropriate world fact.

062). 05). One wonders how one set of facts can “determine” a second set if these facts are entirely independent of each other. It might be tempting to suppose that Wittgenstein is introducing the possibility of a relation of determination distinct from one of logical inference. 37: “A necessity for one thing to happen because another has happened does not exist. 37). The solution, it then seems, is that we cannot view positive and negative atomic facts as separate or independent notions: we can infer the nonexistence of A from the existence of A (A “determines” ϳA) just because, from the perspective of A, ϳA does not count as another fact.

29 The Form der Abbildung has to do just with this idea of a nonarbitrary, inner connection of the picture and reality. As the possibilities of combination common to the pictorial elements and the objects they stand for, it constitutes the ultimate ground of our ability to picture the world. In laying bare the pictorial form, the forms of the objects, it then seems that we would come to see the essence of representation; that is, the a priori core both of our means of representing and of what is represented.
