By Darrel E. Christensen (auth.), Darrel E. Christensen (eds.)

THE WOFFORD SYMPOSIUM: ITs goal, GENESIS, AND subject the aim of The Wofford Symposium was once to stimulate unique scholarship at the subject of the assembly, to supply a discussion board in philosophy of top of the range within the sector which Wofford collage largely serves, and to make on hand for booklet this choice of papers, which it was once felt may meet a weird desire within the modern literature of philosophy. In April, 1967, I attended the once a year assembly of the Metaphysical Society of the USA at Purdue collage. Noting the frequency with which Hegel was once introduced into the discussions at that assembly, i used to be led on events to inject the query into casual team discussions within the halls, "Isn't it time a few type of symposium on Hegel was once held?" at the final celebration Professor Frederick Weiss spoke back, "Why do not you begin it?" i am not but convinced how severe the comment was once meant to be, yet after ready months, part waiting for to listen to of a plan lower than method, it happened to me that maybe what was once in need of used to be a concrete proposal.

Sample text

3 All of these works set themselves the task of discovering through an understanding of textual origin the "Secret of Hegel," which systematic interpretation of the texts had been unable to solve. We are indebted to this research, which soon will be controllable only by specialists, for the great progress which it has made toward its goal. However, we still have a long way to go. In contrast to archival research, philosophical study of the history of development seeks to provide unique evidence and criteria for critical understanding of a philosophy which has assumed historical status.

If this definition is to be found adequate to Hegel's position, however, it must be stipulated that such opposing concepts must have a sufficient range of universality to be shared with other minds. Hegel's use of the term "Negierung" (negation), so far as I have been able to determine, is equivalent to his use of "Widerspruch," except that it characteristically has a directional connotation generally not present in the latter. This is to say, "Widerspruch" frequently connotes mutual negation of opposites, whereas "negation" does not.

This is the concept of Spirit, or God in his plurality of concrete manifestations. It is this class of concepts which pertain to the wholeness of things, with which this study is principally to be concerned. My interest in briefly introducing it here is simply to note that this type of concept, like all others, is for Hegel ultimately derived through mediation. In a particular case, its contents are always in various stages of being determined. Since each mediation contributes toward a more adequate concept of God, each may be seen in a sense to exemplify this mediation.
