Book Description

This volume explores the unity of logic, epistemology and ontology in Hegel's dialectics and the interrelation between the three, thereby revealing the internal features of Hegel's dialectics as well as the connection and divergence between Hegel and Marx's philosophical thought.
As the final volume of a three-volume set that gives insights into Hegel's dialectics and his overall philosophical thought, the book analyses Hegel's dialectics as "a unity of three". As logic it transcends language and is therefore epistemology; as epistemology it transcends theory and is therefore ontology; as ontology it transcends existing things and is therefore logic. Hegel's dialectic thus demonstrates itself as the revolutionary development of each of these three fields in the history of western philosophy. The principle of the agreement of logic with history's historical materialism. A more profound understanding of Hegel's philosophy will therefore deepen our understanding on the philosophy of Marxism.
The title will appeal to scholars and students interested in Hegel and Marx's philosophy, German classical philosophy and Western philosophy.
