But this ‘falling apart’ is not a fall of nature from spirit or, for that matter, of spirit into nature – as it is for Fichte. To use a later image of Hegel, it is rather an ‘upward the new spinozism 25 fall’ of spirit from nature – a ‘rise’ above the latter that brings unique evils with it and also the need to recover the original immediate unity with nature.
