Summary/Abstract: The paper supports the following thesis: according to Hegel, the triple act of the God’s self-creation that unfolds through ‘is,’ ‘was’ and ‘will be’ (that is, through a development) does not proceed from past to present to future but – in a strange way – from now through past to future. Precisely this triplicity of the act of self-creation, proceeding from ‘is,’ ‘was’ and ‘will be,’ is conceived by Hegel in the logics of being, of essence and of concept; that triplicity indeed is borrowed by Marx in The Capital when he traces the transformation of commodity into money and of money into capital; and that triplicity indeed can be rediscovered in the so-called theory of intermediaries: thus, the quantitatively expansive intermediaries are conceived as intermediaries of the present, those that hold the quality – as intermediaries of the past, and those that restore the measure – as intermediaries of the future. In conclusion, the paper sketches a scandalous thesis that, according to the author, follows from all stated above: the logical, the ethical and the aesthetical are three different forms of regulation of the transitions between the three temporalities. Or, aphoristically said, the good is a defi cit of power, the truth – a defi cit of information, and the beautiful – a fear of the future.
