Reason and the restlessness of the speculative: Jean-Luc Nancy's reading of Hegel
Graduate studies at Western
Critical Horizons 6 (1):205-224 (2005)
|Abstract||This paper examines Jean-Luc Nancy's interpretation of Hegel, focusing in particular on The Restlessness of the Negative. It is argued that Nancy's reading represents a significant break with other post-structuralist readings of Hegel by taking his thought to be non-metaphysical. The paper focuses in particular on the role Nancy gives to the negative in Hegel's thought. Ultimately Nancy's reading is limited as an interpretation of Hegel, since he gives no sustained explanation of the self-correcting function of reason.|
