It is well known that Hegel departs from tradition in his treatment of contradiction in a way that is scandalous to some. This book explores the question of what Hegel means by contradiction and how it can be made useful for philosophy. For this purpose, the context of Hegel's analysis of contradiction is subjected to a close analysis - the essentialities, namely identity, difference, diversity, and opposition. The contradiction that arises in the analysis of contradiction is resolved, thus opening up a groundbreaking method for a philosophy that proceeds systematically.

Bekannt ist, dass Hegel in seiner Behandlung des Widerspruchs in einer für manche skandalösen Art von der Tradition abweicht. Vorliegendes Buch geht der Frage nach, was Hegel unter einem Widerspruch überhaupt versteht und auf welche Weise er für die Philosophie dienstbar gemacht werden kann. Dafür wird der Kontext von Hegels Analyse des Widerspruchs einer genauen Analyse unterzogen - die Wesenheiten, namentlich Identität, Unterschied, Verschiedenheit und Gegensatz. Der bei der Analyse des Gegensatzes auftretende Widerspruch löst sich auf und eröffnet so eine bahnbrechende Methode für eine systematisch verfahrende Philosophie.
The Martensen Period: 1837-1841, 2nd Revised and Augmented Edition
Author:
This is the second volume in a three-volume work dedicated to exploring the influence of G.W.F. Hegel’s philosophical thinking in Golden Age Denmark. The work demonstrates that the largely overlooked tradition of Danish Hegelianism played a profound and indeed constitutive role in many spheres of the Golden Age culture.
This second tome treats the most intensive period in the history of the Danish Hegel reception, namely, the years from 1837 to 1841. The main figure in this period is the theologian Hans Martensen who made Hegel’s philosophy a sensation among the students at the University of Copenhagen in the late 1830s. This period also includes the publication of Johan Ludvig Heiberg’s Hegelian journal, Perseus, and Frederik Christian Sibbern’s monumental review of it, which represented the most extensive treatment of Hegel’s philosophy in the Danish language at the time. During this period Hegel’s philosophy flourished in unlikely genres such as drama and lyric poetry. During these years Hegelianism enjoyed an unprecedented success in Denmark until it gradually began to be perceived as a dangerous trend.
The Heiberg Period: 1824-1836, 2nd Revised and Augmented Edition
Author:
This is the first of a three-volume work dedicated to exploring the influence of G.W.F. Hegel’s philosophical thinking in Golden Age Denmark. The work demonstrates that the largely overlooked tradition of Danish Hegelianism played a profound and indeed constitutive role in many spheres of Golden Age culture.
This initial tome covers the period from the beginning of the Hegel reception in the Danish Kingdom in the 1820s until the end of 1836. The dominant figure from this period is the poet and critic Johan Ludvig Heiberg, who attended Hegel’s lectures in Berlin in 1824 and then launched a campaign to popularize Hegel’s philosophy among his fellow countrymen. Using his journal Kjøbenhavns flyvende Post as a platform, Heiberg published numerous articles containing ideas that he had borrowed from Hegel. Several readers felt provoked by Heiberg’s Hegelianism and wrote critical responses to him, many of which appeared in Kjøbenhavnsposten, the rival of Heiberg’s journal. Through these debates Hegel’s philosophy became an important part of Danish cultural life.
Im Oktober 1820 erschienen Hegels »Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts« erstmals im Druck. Nach der Erläuterung des Autors handelte es sich bei dem Werk um einen »Leitfaden« für die Hörer seiner Vorlesungen. 200 Jahre später lässt sich die Frage stellen, in welche Richtungen dieser Leitfaden seine Leser seitdem geführt hat, also welche Perspektiven durch das Werk eröffnet wurden und weiterhin werden, und wo die Leser den Faden haben fallenlassen, statt ihm weiter zu folgen. Dafür reicht es nicht, lediglich festzustellen, dass die »Grundlinien« auch das gegenwärtige Denken begleiten müssen, also jeder, der heute etwa über Freiheit, Person und Handlung, Gerechtigkeit, Universalismus oder den modernen Staat nachdenken will, zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit Hegels Werk herausgefordert ist. Gefragt ist vielmehr zugleich etwas Anderes: Inwiefern ist eine Rechtsphilosophie nach Hegel – im Doppelsinn von post und secundum – gegenwärtig noch möglich – oder sogar nötig?

Daniel Bensaïd: From the Actuality of Revolution to the Melancholic Wager is the first systematic full-length study of Bensaïd’s renovation of Marxism. Bensaïd, a student leader during the May '68 revolt and founder of the Ligue communiste révolutionnaire, was an exemplar of a creative and open liberatory Marxism, leaving a vast oeuvre for a new generation of Marxists to explore. Much of Bensaïd’s writing remains untranslated into English, and Roso’s volume offers a comprehensive critical overview.

This volume offers a critical re-assessment of the thought of Ernst Bloch, best known for his groundbreaking study The Principle of Hope and one of the most significant European thinkers and public intellectuals of the twentieth century. It explores Bloch’s life, work and reception; his debt to Marx and Hegel; his central concepts of hope and utopia; his affinities with philosophers such as Gramsci and Žižek; and his radical reframing of our understanding of history, society and culture. Above all, this volume examines the relevance of Bloch’s ideas today, in a world still shot through with economic inequality and social injustice.

This collection is the first comprehensive history of Fichte’s reception in America, highlighting the existence of a long and strong tradition of Fichtean studies throughout the continent and demonstrating the centrality of Fichtean ideas in contemporary discussions of issues such as feminism, social criticism, and decolonial thought. Read and reinterpreted in the highly diverse circumstances across the American continent, Fichte’s ideas are presented in a radically new light, uncovering the Fichtean spirit of self-activity and autonomous thought in an American context.
This book is a philosophical-historical examination of the influence of the knowledge of China imparted by the Jesuits on the thinking of the German Enlightenment in the 18th century. It is not primarily concerned with a comprehensive reconstruction of the philosophy of the thinkers discussed, but rather with the political and intellectual contextualisation of a line of thought that recognised the practical philosophy and state organisation of China as different from that of Europe, while equal to it and in some respects superior to it. This challenged the claim of theology that Christian revelation alone provided access to truth. The volume analyses the opposition to this line of thought, especially on the part of Protestant orthodoxy. It argues that in the German Enlightenment of the 18th century, the possibility emerged to conceive philosophy on the basis of reason as a phenomenon not limited to Europe but as a path followed under different conditions in China.
Was versteht der große Philosoph der Freiheit, Hegel, unter dem Begriff, der seinen Untersuchungen zugrunde liegt? Ist Hegels Theorie der Freiheit liberal zu verstehen? Oder ist ihm eine Art von Totalitarismus zuzuschreiben, in dem von persönlicher Freiheit keine Rede sein kann? Um diese und viele andere Fragen zu beantworten, macht es sich die vorliegende Studie zur Aufgabe, Hegels „Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts“ philosophisch zu rekonstruieren und seinen Argumentationsgang deutlich darzustellen.
