Hyper-dialectic of Merleau-Ponty
- Painting: oil on canvas
- Size: 42Hx52Wx2 inches
Hegel defined spirit as "that which relates itself to itself and is determinate, it is other-being and being-for-self, and abides within itself; in other words it is in and for itself... pure self-recognition" - the "determinate negation" of "thesis" by "hypothesis" into a final "synthesis" of constructive ends. We don’t enter into conflict or destroy without a teleological end. But Merleau-Ponty recognized the irreparable rift between thesis and hypothesis, where, although the two meet, they can never reconcile, and remain in an epic battle of conflict that results in, not a teleologically constructive end, but a completely inexplicable, although very real conclusion – a new, if conflicting and never meeting, never coalescing, unanticipated state that is the offspring of neither – the "hyper-dialectic," the hyper-constructive.
