Hegel’s Science of Logic proposes to begin with no determinate, presupposed contentwhatsoever, and then, purely by dint of a methodically controlled reflection on the ‘movement’ of thinking itself, to generate a demonstrably complete list of categories and forms of thought. Like other of his contemporaries, Hegel regarded Kant as having neglected to provide a derivation of the categories he identified as constituting the structure of objectively valid experience (cp. SL 21.48/41, 12.44/541). The Science of Logic is intended to provide such a derivation and, in doing so, to improve upon similar attempts by Hegel’s predecessors, especially Fichte and Schelling.
