A Short History of Philosophy





BEING (τὸ ὄντως ὄν, the existing; German, Seyn).—(1) Existence ; (2) in the antithesis of Thought and Being, that which is, in contrast to that which is thought, as a form of existence; (3) within thought itself, the first and most general of the categories; (4) being itself, that which involves the necessity of being, is The Absolute.


The whole range of Philosophy, from the beginning of its history, has been connected with Being and Becoming—the abiding and the fleeting; the system of Heraclitus, with its unity of being and not being, maintaining that all is in perpetual flux; the Eleatics, with their formula, only being is, and becoming is not at all. Thus the mystery of Being continues to occupy philosophic thought, until we find Hegel making a start with the discussion of Being and not Being.— V. ONTOLOGY.
