The first dialectical triad in Hegels Logic and put in a mathematical form is
Being + Nothing = Becoming
Although a strange sum, I find this understandable. His second dialectical triad takes the form:
Quality + Quantity = Measure
Measure + Measureless = Essence
How should one understand these two dialectical triads? Quantity on the face of it seems analogous to Measure.
Is Quantity to be thought of as pure abstract quantity and then Measure to be a kind of quantifiable quality?
Essence, as far as I understand it, is of Ancient Greek provenance and modified by Medieval Scholastic philosophy. How does the ancient or traditional understanding of Essence fit into Hegels schema?
