Hegel'S First Philosophy of Nature

(p.74) Chapter II Hegel'S First Philosophy of Nature
Hegel's Development: Night Thoughts (Jena 1801–1806)

H. S. Harris

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Hegel's first philosophy of nature. The direct evidence about Hegel's philosophy of nature in 1801/2 is not quite so sparse and indirect as the evidence about his ‘logic and metaphysics’. The first section examines his concept of ‘true physics’. The dialectical concept of matter as ‘real gravity’, an identity which is a unity, of opposites, and ‘an infinitely opposed identity, a thoroughly relative identity’ is the main physical theme of the Dissertation. The second section explores the solar system in the Dissertation. The last section examines the concepts of mechanism, chemism, and organism.

Keywords:   true physics, solar system, Dissertation, mechanism, chemism, organism
