It is simply a fact that it is not in the same intention that Dewey relates to Hegel in a programmatic article such as “The Present position of Logical Theory,” in his Lectures on Hegel’s Philosophy of Spirit, in his Lectures on the Logic of Hegel, and in the articles collected in The Influence of Darwin on Philosophy. Dewey’s references to Hegel differ in status and functions, and these differences have to be made explicit if one wants to elaborate a consistent account of Dewey’s relation to Hegel. The article proceeds in four steps. It distinguishes between what relates to Dewey’s reading of Hegel (1), to Dewey’s use of Hegel (2), and to Dewey’s reconstruction of Hegel (3). In a last and concluding step, it deals with the methodological originality of Dewey’s project of actualizing Hegel (4).

    In a letter dated 9 July 1945he wrote: “I jumped through Hegel I should say not just out of him. I took some of the hoop (continuity anti-hard-and-fast separation) with me and also carried away considerable of the paper the hoop was as filled with” (C iii: 15481).
