Catherine Malabou, Antonio Negri, John D. Caputo, Bruno
Bosteels, Mark C. Taylor, and Slavoj Zizek join seven
others-including William Desmond, Katrin Pahl, Adrian Johnston,
Edith Wyschogrod, and Thomas A. Lewis-to apply Hegel's thought to
twenty-first-century philosophy, politics, and religion. Doing away
with claims that the evolution of thought and history is at an end,
these thinkers safeguard Hegel's innovations against irrelevance
and, importantly, reset the distinction of secular and sacred.
These original contributions focus on Hegelian analysis and the
transformative value of the philosopher's thought in relation to
our current "turn to religion." Malabou develops Hegel's motif of
confession in relation to forgiveness; Negri writes of Hegel's
philosophy of right; Caputo reaffirms the radical theology made
possible by Hegel; and Bosteels critiques fashionable readings of
the philosopher and argues against the reducibility of his
dialectic. Taylor reclaims Hegel's absolute as a process of
infinite restlessness, and Zizek revisits the religious
implications of Hegel's concept of letting go. Mirroring the
philosopher's own trajectory, these essays progress dialectically
through politics, theology, art, literature, philosophy, and
science, traversing cutting-edge theoretical discourse and
illuminating the ways in which Hegel inhabits them.
