In a letter to Schelling in November 1800, Hegel expressed that he thought that Schelling knew enough about the progress of his reflections and the nature of the ‘Ideal’ that he was formulating in them. His letter showed his desire to be invited to collaborate with Schelling in the academic world of Jena. For Schelling, philosophical insight was an end in itself, while for Hegel, at this stage, it was primarily an instrument for social regeneration. This chapter discusses the Ideal in reflective form, absolute reflection and speculation, logic, metaphysics, concept, judgement, and syllogism.

Keywords: Ideal; reflective form; absolute reflection; speculation; judgement; syllogism
