Solger and Hegel: Negation and Privation

Paolo Diego Bubbio
University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury
This paper has two related goals. Firstly, after briefly clarifying the theoretical core of Solger's thought, it will analyse his metaphysics from Hegel's point of view, emphasizing that sacrifice is, for Solger, the fundamental structure of the relationship between the finite and the Infinite. Secondly, it will investigate the main reasons behind Hegel's criticism of Solger, showing that they have different conceptions of privation and negation and concluding that Solger and Hegel have different aims. Hegel's aim consists in recomposing the unity of finite and infinite, whereas Solger's thought is structured on the rupture between these two.
