What sort of analysis is F Jameson's discussion of Hegel? Is it right, wrong, unusual? Especially as it appears here; I'm about to read, and didn't want to cultivate any bad habits, in doing so.
And especially this:
The categories of Being are those of common sense or a daily life among objects, in which the law of non-contradiction holds sway; this is the world of Verstand or Understanding (in the philosophical jargon of the day), and it will be more thoroughly dealt with in what follows, inasmuch as it is a thought of extension and objectivity, a reified thought which must reify itself in order to grasp its reified objects... Unlike the Faerie Queene, however, if there is a villain, there are no heroes: none of the knights, not the Dialectic, not Reason (Vernunft), not Truth, nor Speculative Thinking, nor even the Notion itself, go forth to do battle with this baleful force (although it might perhaps be argued that Philosophy is itself such a heroic contender, which, besides meaning Hegel, also means all those other positive things).
