The Owl of Minerva 21 (1):21-40 (1989)

It is no secret that Hegel, along with Vico, whom he never read, and Rousseau, whom he read with enthusiasm, regarded poetic meaning as historically prior to prosaic meaning - the figurative preceded the literal, the tropological antedated the logical per se. Indeed, Hegel went so far, in his Aesthetic, as to qualify poetry as “Man’s original grasp of truth”. Since, as we know, for Hegel the true is the whole, it would seem that this original grasp of the truth would have to be accounted for in any speculative account of truth.
