Hegel and the Infinite: Religion, Politics, and Dialectic (Insurrections: Critical Studies in Religion, Politics, and Culture)

Catherine Malabou, Antonio Negri, John D. Caputo, Bruno Bosteels, Mark C. Taylor, and Slavoj Zizek sign up for seven others―including William Desmond, Katrin Pahl, Adrian Johnston, Edith Wyschogrod, and Thomas A. Lewis―to observe Hegel's suggestion to twenty-first-century philosophy, politics, and faith. eliminating claims that the evolution of suggestion and heritage is at an finish, those thinkers guard Hegel's thoughts opposed to irrelevance and, importantly, reset the excellence of secular and sacred.

These unique contributions specialize in Hegelian research and the transformative price of the philosopher's concept with regards to our present "turn to religion." Malabou develops Hegel's motif of confession when it comes to forgiveness; Negri writes of Hegel's philosophy of correct; Caputo reaffirms the novel theology made attainable through Hegel; and Bosteels reviews trendy readings of the thinker and argues opposed to the reducibility of his dialectic. Taylor reclaims Hegel's absolute as a means of endless restlessness, and Zizek revisits the non secular implications of Hegel's notion of letting cross. Mirroring the philosopher's personal trajectory, those essays development dialectically via politics, theology, artwork, literature, philosophy, and technological know-how, traversing state of the art theoretical discourse and illuminating the ways that Hegel inhabits them.
