By | June 30th, 2021|LRO 307|

"Be Happy, Eat, Drink, Repeat." These five words constitute the printed slogan of a recycling bag by a well-known take-away franchise coffee shop selling, among other things, beverages and fast food.

Hegel’s technical recommendations seem to me highly relevant to our daily practice in the analytical field. To simplify matters, and since Hegel uses propositions as examples, let [...]
