This is why reflection re-establishes the first immediacy of being, just as this immediacy had been reflected into essence. On the other hand, it is indeed also dualistic, but this dualism is not, as in Spinoza, the parallelism of Logos and Nature which never encounter one another.

The subjective logic, or the logic of the concept, hyplolite the logic of sense, but this sense is not a subject opposed to the object.

Being is determined only by nothingness.
