Liberation from the opposition of consciousness
1. Absolute knowledge is the truth of all modes of consciousness because, as the course of the Phenomenology brought out, it is only in absolute knowledge that the separation of the subject matter from the certainty of itself is completely resolved:
truth has become equal to certainty and this certainty to truth.
2. Pure science thus presupposes the liberation from the opposition of consciousness. It contains thought in so far as this moment is equally the fact as it is in itself, or the fact in itself in so far as this is equally pure thought.
3. As science, truth is pure-consciousness as it develops itself and has the shape of the self, so that that which exists in and for itself is the conscious concept and the concept as such is that which exists in and for itself.
