Hegelian Metaphysics

This chapter focuses on Peirce's criticism that Hegel neglected to give sufficient weight to what Peirce calls ‘Secondness’, in a way that put his philosophical system out of touch with reality. The nature of this criticism is explored, together with its relevant philosophical background. It is argued that while the issues Peirce raises go deep, nonetheless in some respects Hegel's position is closer to his own than he may have realised, whilst in others that criticism can be resisted by the Hegelian.
