By moving the middle term to the left, the bias, for the moment, is in favor of "being" over negation or death. This is the bias of intuition, which takes things in their immediacy and wishes not to think about the finite nature of its ideas. 55 52 See MICHAEL ROSEN, HEGEL'S DIALECTIC AND ITS CRITICISM 87 (1982) ("the word determination {Bestimmung) can mean either the act of determining or the outcome of such an act. "), 53 See SLAVOJ £l2EK, THE PUPPET AND THE DWARF: THE PERVERSE CORE OF CHRISTIANITY 3 (2003) ("sometimes in [Hegel's] work we find something I am tempted to call a 'downward synthesis': after the two opposed positions, the third one, the Aufhebung of the two, is not a higher synthesis but a kind of negative synthesis, the lowest point").

Neither side can account for its lack by itself. Speculative Reason is able to bring forth this lack into the light of day, showing 45 For a history of "speculation," see RODOLPHE GASCHß, THE TAIN OF THE MIRROR: DERRIDA AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF REFLECTION 42-3 (1986). Non-Hegelians will recognize in Understanding, Dialectical Reason, and Speculative Reason the triad of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. Of this notorious triad, Allen Wood writes: The regrettable tradition of expounding this theme in the Hegelian dialectic through the grotesque'jargon of "thesis," "antithesis," and "synthesis" began in 1837 with Heinrich Moritz Chalybäus, a bowdlerizer of German idealist philosophy, whose ridiculous expository devices should have been forgotten along with his name.

Although there can be no such thing as pure immediacy, immediacy itself is no more illusory than is mediation.

Walter Kaufmann notes, with justification, that the Logic does not really start from Pure Being. Rather, the Logic starts with the privileging of the immediate over what is mediated.
