Example text

And cognition has to do with mind. But this was 292 Commentary not actual cognition, only our concept of cognition. So we cannot introduce the concept of mind by appeal directly to the Logic. We have to derive its necessity from logic and philosophy of nature. (This corresponds to the first of the three ‘syllogisms’ described at the end of Enc. III: cf. ) Conversely, philosophy of mind must ‘authenticate’ (bew¨ahren) the concept of mind by developing and actualizing it. It authenticates it by showing that what is derived from the concept of mind presents us with an adequate and complete account of the mind, that the mind is in fact the ‘self-knowing idea’.

Pneuma is Greek for ‘wind, air, breath (of life), life, soul, (a) spirit’. Pneumatology is thus the ‘study of spirit’. The word was also current in Britain: ‘The branch [of knowledge] which treats of the nature and operations of minds has by some been called Pneumatology’ (Thomas Reid, Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man, Preface). Pneumatology or rationelle Psychologie (‘so-called’, because it is not, in Hegel’s view, rational) was an a-priori discipline attempting to prove that the human soul is a substance, simple, numerically identical over time, immortal, etc.

No one mental force can be logically derived from the others, or from the concept of mind itself. The modes of treatment already described are ‘understanding of human nature’, which considers the ‘individual’, and rational psychology, which considers the ‘universal’. Empirical psychology deals with neither of these, but with ‘particular forms’ (Besonderungen), that is the mind’s faculties. Hegel distinguishes the objects of the three rejected types of psychology as respectively individual, universal, and particular.
