It embodies clearly a central theme in Hegel’s normative epistemology: normative authority underwriting communal epistemic practices is internal to those practices. How does spirit underwrite absolute knowing as a successful and scepticism-resistant epistemic practice? Pippin (1989: 247) argues that absolute knowing is a 28 Jeﬀery Kinlaw movement or process that involves self-conscious reﬂection about the process – that is, I add, the function of justiﬁcatory practices within the community – rather than a terminal endpoint.
If communal consensus of a geistlich community is what that community takes as authoritative (i) for its justiﬁcatory practices, it will always coincide with what actually justiﬁes knowledge-claims (iv), precisely because communal consensus has the ﬂexibility to remain answerable to the community’s experience of its epistemic practices. The structural coherence of absolute knowing, as a way of knowing, is assured. In his Jena scepticism essay, Hegel had suggested that reason was immune from some of Sextus’s tropes, because it did not attempt to ground knowledge in something external to the structure of knowing (Di Giovanni & Harris 1985: 40–42).
As K. R. Westphal has observed, this indicates a signiﬁcant externalist element in Hegel’s epistemology (2003: 41). There is no non-conceptualized experience, but the actual world informs one’s concepts. Experience motivates concept revision, which, however, is guided by concept deployment. Concept deployment, viewed from a diﬀerent angle, is limited because RR is mediated. A concept is neither what I determine it to be nor how a view from nowhere would construe it. A concept’s meaning is determined by what we can justiﬁably infer when deploying the concept, where “we” refers to a geistlich epistemic community.
