Abstract

This article clarifies Hegel’s argument in “Force and the Understanding,” in his Phenomenology of Spirit, by developing Hegel’s underlying point through discussion of recent and ongoing issues concerning explanation in natural and psychological science. The latter proceeds via a critical discussion of the problem of other minds and the “theory theory of mind”. The article thereby shows how and why Hegel’s analysis of the understanding inaugurates a crucial transition in his Phenomenology, from consciousness to self-consciousness and life. Putting Hegel’s underlying points into conversation with recent science shows how his point—that scientific understanding is not abstract but embedded in human life—still speaks to science.
