Who thinks abstractly?



The article by G.W.F. Hegel "Who thinks abstractly?" proves, in a popular and ironic manner, the paradoxical thesis that the disposition towards abstraction is by no means the specific characteristic of theoretical thought, but of extremely stereotype thinking process. A brief foreword to the article gives some information on the time of its writing and on Russian translations, and points out the necessity of its republishing.
