    Default Hegel and contradiction

    How exactly does Hegelian dialectic survive the formal logic of the law of noncontradiction? I have been seeing people say it does without explanation.

    A word of advice for new posters, don't try to be too edgy/lazy with your questions. Provide citations, quotes and context so that we see you at least did some prior research, and also so that people can better respond to your questions.

    What do you mean exactly? This is literally all the information I had when I learned of such criticism, and I looked into it and could find no such information. So, maybe, some advice to more experienced posters, do be condescending and help me through my intellectual journey

    And apologies if that seemed very confrontational, but your comment seemed to me very condescending.

    What you said indicates they (who are probably just youtube commentators) haven't read Hegel. So ask them for a fuller explanation or references where they picked up that criticism; they are the ones making the criticism. The burden is on them. If you can't/won't communicate with them, then it doesn't matter, for your intellectual journey will not be affected by their unexplained claims.
