Hegel s Undiscovered Thesis Antithesis Synthesis Dialectics

For over fifty years, Hegel interpreters have rejected the former belief that Hegel used thesis-antithesis-synthesis dialectics. In this incisive analysis of Hegel's philosophy, Leonard F. Wheat shows that the modern interpretation is false. Wheat rigorously demonstrates that there are in fact thirty-eight well-concealed dialectics in Hegel's two most important works--twenty-eight in Phenomenology of Spirit and ten in The Philosophy of History. Wheat also develops other major new insights: • Hegel's chief dialectical format consists of a two-concept thesis, a two-concept antithesis, and a two-concept synthesis that borrows one concept from the thesis and one from the antithesis. • All dialectics are analogically based on the Christian separation-and-return myth: the dialectic separates from and returns to a thesis concept. • Hegel's enigmatic Spirit is a four-faceted, deliberately fictitious, nonsupernatural entity that exists only as an atheistic redefinition of "God." • Spirit's "divine life" begins not with consciousness but with unconsciousness, in the prehuman state of nature-before Spirit acquires its human mind. • Hegel's concept of freedom is not a sociopolitical concept but release from bondage to religious superstition (belief in a supernatural God). • In Hegel's widely misinterpreted master-and-slave parable, the master is God, the slave is man, and the slave's gaining his freedom is man's becoming an atheist. • The standard non-Hegelian base-superstructure interpretation of Marx's dialectics is false. Marx's basic dialectic is actually this: thesis = communal ownership poverty, antithesis = private ownership wealth, synthesis = communal ownership wealth. Wheat also shows that Marx and Tillich, who subtly used Hegelian dialectics in their own works, are the only authors who have understood Hegelian dialectics. Thoroughly researched and exhaustive in detail, this radical reinterpretation of Hegel's philosophy should greatly interest Hegel scholars and students.

Antithesis and Oxymoron in Early Cornelian Tragedies

No writer seems to have been quite as obsessed by antithesis as Corneille. This figure of speech provides a satisfying sense of balance to poetic discourse, a means to provide order and symmetry to the poetic artifact. What is most interesting to note, however, is that Corneille's use of antithesis is systematically counterbalanced by a sustained and equally intense commitment to the use of oxymoron. The aim of this thesis, then, is two-fold: to identify the use of antithetical structures in Cornelian drama with the goal of establishing the function of this structure in his first four tragedies (Médée, Le Cid, Horace and Cinna), and to identify occurrences of oxymoron in order to explain the reasons why the author chose to use one figure versus an other in writing his tragedies. In order to distinguish between antithesis and oxymoron, I have prefaced my analysis with a comprehensive introduction that seeks to establish clear and distinct definitions for each structure. Because antithesis is by far the more prevalent of the two figures, I have analysed antithesis in detail in each of the plays. The primary antithesis in Cornelian tragedy is the fundamental distinction between life and death, consequences that derive from the conflicts each major character must confront. The use of antithesis reveals that Corneille's tragic vision is linked to his perception that the world is composed of irresolvable conflicts. Corneille's predilection for antithesis becomes both a reflection of his tragic perspective and a linguistic rendering of the conflict's fundamental irresolution. The final chapter contributes to a greater understanding as to why Cornelian closures seem so fundamentally irresolute, especially compared to the more "classical" Racine. Corneille appears to use antithesis and oxymoron in order to suggest a poetic rather than an ideological perspective on the nature of human conflicts. This chapter also demonstrates that, although Corneille was intensely committed to the dramatic nature of tragedy, he was equally committed to the poetic function of tragic discourse. He sets up impossible dilemmas for his characters to establish the fundamental necessity of art as the sole means of transcending an unforgiving reality that man is incapable of altering. In this regard, the artist himself becomes the real hero of the Cornelian tragedy, because he alone has transcended the conflicts that the antithesis posed, and the oxymoron denied.
