Philosophica 54 (2019)

Taking its cue from the untimely paradoxes manifesting themselves in some of the most visible instances of Hegel’s and Marx’s reception in the twentieth century, this essay proceeds to explore the ground between the two thinkers with particular reference to their philosophico‑historical grasp of repetition. After a number of preliminary observations on the ideological subtext involved in Marx’s reference to Hegel in the Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte and the temporality their intertextual conjuncture stages, I focus on four major complications that attend the comparison of Hegelian and Marxian notions of repetition, as well as on their correlation to the historical events of Revolution, Counter‑Revolution and Restoration. I conclude with some reflections on the “exit strategies” Marx and Hegel adopt vis‑à‑vis the specter of iteration as a sign of submission to the gravitational pull of the past upon the present and future.
