a confused phrase, it is only in the life of self-conscious rational mind that illustrations can be found. The opposites of external nature are not identical for thought; the sphere is, therefore, in itself, confined to and governed by lower categories, and is not fully rational. Mind alone over-reaches its other, denies itself in order to find itself, and brings the notion into being. In discussing the Philosophy of Right itself we may see more closely the way in which logical demands are met by the ethical life, and to what extent the answers are adequate.
