My contribution deals with Angelica Nuzzo’s Approaching Hegel’s Logic, Obliquely, insofar as this book displays a connection between the speculative logic and the conceptual comprehension of history. In particular, regarding Hegel’s logic as the exposition of the thinking activity that is capable of comprehending transformation insofar as it enacts this movement, I am very interested in the way Nuzzo characterizes advancement, pushing to its extreme Hegel’s conceiving of it as the mediating moment of his speculative logic. For, I think she well brings out its potential for a conceptual comprehension of history in its complexity. So I would like to tackle some of the implication of such account of advancement.
