Since Mueller’s 1958 article calling Hegelian dialectics a “legend,” it has been fashionable to deny that Hegel used thesis-antithesis-synthesis dialectics.
But in truth, Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit has 28 dialectics hidden on four outline levels, and The Philosophy of History has 10 more on three outline levels.
The proposed changes, however, worry some psychiatrists, who see in them a creeping medicalisation of normal behaviour.
They point out that the DSM carries a lot of weight.
What kind of artist was Selim, and why does no specific attitude and approach emerge when all his works are viewed side by side?
More importantly, why is it impossible to reach a definitive conclusion about him?One example is a gene called (which stands for disrupted-in-schizophrenia 1).A malfunctioning version of the protein encoded by this gene contributes, as its name suggests, to schizophrenia. Likewise, genes involved in making the myelin sheaths that insulate nerve cells go wrong in both schizophrenic and bipolar patients.Marx’s basic dialectic (one of four) saw history separating from and returning to Communism, going from communal ownership poverty (primitive communism, or gens) to private ownership wealth (slavery, feudalism, capitalism) to communal ownership wealth (final communism).Tillich’s basic dialectic (one of many) separates from and returns to God, advancing from Yes to God Yes to supernaturalism (theism) to No to God No to supernaturalism (atheism) to Yes to God No to supernaturalism (humanism: humanity is the nonsupernatural “God above the God of theism”).As a creative artist who had determined to pass ‘beyond the visible, Selim Turan developed his works by burning his boats twice and disregarding any concerns about whether he was ‘understood’ or not, advanced along the path he himself had defined until the end of his life, without ever looking back.WHAT good is a diagnostic tool if it is too complicated for doctors to use? In the United States the release back in February of a draft version of the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) has triggered a furious row over whether this tool has become too complex.In Phenomenology’s macrodialectic, Hegel’s nonsupernatural Spirit–all reality, everything in the universe, including man and artificial objects–advances from unconscious union (thesis) to conscious separation (antithesis) to a synthesis of conscious (from the antithesis) union (from the thesis).Previous interpretations of Phenomenology have missed this dialectic: they have assumed that Spirit’s journey begins with consciousness, whereas the journey actually begins in the primordial state of nature, before man arrives and provides Spirit with its Mind (the collective mind of man).Sakip Sabanci Museum, Istanbul Selim Turan (1915-1994), who spent more than half his life in France, sought metaphors and antitheses in his life, his works and his approach to the world.Just as it is impossible to examine the paintings and sculptures that he produced between 19 in a linear manner (such as his student years, period engaged in research, maturity etc), it is not easy to precisely frame his artistic position.
