" we will be able to separate target phenomena into specific divi sions; for this reason the second one classification is "plurality. " and so on. With Hegel, the trendy development to subjectivism is arrested, and we've got, now not strangely, a brand new kind of "category" - the class of the cohesion of proposal and being, of self and different, of topic and item.
