Abstract:

The author asks us to undertand Hegel's system as a new approach to human linguistic communication. Hegel, he argues, is concerned with building community and mutual comprehension rather than with completing metaphysics or developing historical critique. Hegel constructs a complex ideal of how we should use certain words. This ideal philosophical vocabulary is flexible and open to revision, and is constructed according to principles available at all times and all places, it is responsive to, but not dictated by, the shared language of cultured discourse whose concepts it attempts to refine and universalize. Systematic philosophy is thus a temporal process in which participants gain the words they can use to understand each other: in which they create for themselves and for their community a company of words. -- Back cover.
