Abstract and Keywords

In the last twenty years, the question of Hegel’s view of metaphysics has become a contested question. Especially important is the issue: what does Hegel mean when he says, not that metaphysics requires an unusual, speculative logic for its exposition, but that “metaphysics coincides with logic” (Die Logik fällt daher mit der Metaphysik zusammen.“EL §24). The aim of this chapter is to offer an interpretation of this claim, with special attention to Hegel’s understanding of Kant’s transcendental logic, which Hegel both highly praises and sharply criticizes, and to his equally important attention to Aristotle, the originator of the view that logic itself has metaphysical implications.

Keywords: Hegel, metaphysics, logic, transcendental, Kant, Aristotle
