The world process is a process in which the absolute knows its own content. To be able to look the part on his own idea (that is, ideas are the inner content of the world spirit), necessary to make it outside, ie to implement, translate into reality, "objectify". Every thing we can be seen as objectified or materialized the idea, but the whole objective world as a connected system of objectification. Hence one of the most important fundamental principle of the whole of Hegel's philosophy – the principle of the identity of thinking and being. According to this principle, the traditional opposition between thought and things is wrong. In Actually it's the same thing, or rather two forms of the phenomenon of world spirit.

The original unity in the philosophy of Hegel is the absolute idea of serving both the subject and the object of not only knowledge but also development. This development is carried out as a process of progressive deployment of a system of categories that are not "being the first birth" (as Aristotle) and not "a priori forms of thought '(as in Kant), and universal forms and of life, and thinking simultaneously. That is the doctrine of dialectical self-development categories and sold to the fundamental principle of the identity of Hegel's philosophy of thinking and being. The fact that every the change involves the interaction. But if the original top one, namely so it is in Hegel, he is to engage with itself, must be split in two. Due to this bifurcation and subsequent interaction between the separated parts of a gradual structuring of the originally amorphous unity in which all the more concretized and made clear its content.

This is essence of the dialectical method. As a creative spirit should be free. But his art must obey the law required, that is the negation of liberty. However, because the spirit is absolute, ie covers all, it serves the sole cause of all events. Nothing compels him to act one way or another, except himself, so he … Free! In fact, according to Hegel, to be free means "To himself and to set goals to himself," without any external coercion was. However, the paradox of "creative on demand" is not eliminated, but only moved into the very concept of freedom. Freedom in the Hegelian sense the opposite of any compulsion, but it is opposed to any arbitrary and because the "free will has the necessary content," or, in other words, freedom is "revealed necessity. " Freedom in this sense closely linked with the knowledge of the possible, and with precisely such a knowledge, implementation (objectification), which is the "disclosure" or realization of the need. Thus, the measure freedom of the creative spirit is the knowledge of their own capabilities, ie, knowledge of the internal "reserve" is still unrealized potentialities and the law of the order of their "realization". If so, and Hegel thinks that this is the case of It follows that "true need" and there is freedom.
