The concept's emergence at the end of the Doctrine of essence implies the acknowledgement by the reader of the Science of logic of the participation of her own reflection in the absolute knowing's immanent unfolding. From this realization derives the transformation of pure thought's mode of presentation, which demands the re-reading of the first two doctrines of Hegel's Logic. The second incursion into the Science, precisely because it is improved by that acknowledgement, enables the enlargement of the comprehension of the dialectics' speculative turn, point knowingly problematic located between the dialectics of each categorical pair. According to a defined contour, the doctoral research intends to reconstruct that second incursion, clarifying the way in which the reader's reflection consummates the explanation of the speculative. Furthermore, the new perspective built from the argument of the reader's immanent reflexion puts in evidence the one-sidedness of two lines of interpretation, apparently opposed, of this work of Hegel. The defense of the logical selfconsciousness, formulated in the works of Pippin and Rödl, and the objectivist comprehension of the Science, represented by Ng and Houlgate, reveal themselves to be complementary. Apart from the specific investigation of these two tendencies of the secondary literature, the Science of Logic interpretation elaborated by the present research, by turning the work's reading theme of the immanence, should offer a norm by which the commentary about the Logic in general can be criticized and developed.
