Hegel?sFoundation Free Metaphysics focuses on one question: What is it to be a universal? Moss demonstrates, through a close examination of Hegel?s Doctrine of the Concept in his Science of Logic, how Hegel?s concept of singularity is designed to solve a host of philosophical paradoxes relevant to the self-referential nature of universality. He shows how Hegel?s account of universality, particularity, and singularity offers solutions to four paradoxes of self-reference: the problem of participation, the problem of the missing difference, the problem of psychologism, and the problem of onto-theology. By adopting a metaphysical reading of Richard Dien Winfield?s foundation free epistemology, Moss critically engages dominant readings in contemporary Hegel scholarship, including McDowell, Brandom, and Pippin. What is more, Moss further contributes to the current debate concerning the status of Hegel as a metaphysician by systematically explicating Hegel?s appropriation of the ontological argument in his Doctrine of the Concept. Hegel?s Foundation Free Metaphysics will appeal to scholars interested in Hegel, the history of 19th-century philosophy, metaphysics, and epistemology.
