It rather means that the concepts fundamental to the various realms of reality – such as being and nothing, essence and appearance, cause and effect, as well as fundamental principles like the principle of identity or the principle of contradiction – can only be comprehended within a system in which each concept is elucidated in light of its own contrasting complement and its “holistic” interconnection with other concept-pairs.

2 HEGEL’S PHILOSOPHICAL DEVELOPMENT PRIOR TO THE DIFFERENZSCHRIFT Though the Differenzschrift is Hegel’s first publication,1 it by no means marks the beginning of his philosophical development.
