    Hegel, Literature, and the Problem of Agency.Allen Speight - 2001 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit has attracted much attention recently from philosophers, but none of the existing English-language books on the text addresses one of the most difficult questions the book raises: Why does the Phenomenology make such rich and provocative use of literary works and genres? Allen Speight's bold contribution to the debate on the work of Hegel argues that behind Hegel's extraordinary appeal to literature in the Phenomenology lies a philosophical project concerned with understanding human agency in the modern (...)

  2. Arendt on Narrative Theory and Practice.Allen Speight - 2011 - College Literature 38 (1):115-130.
    Hannah Arendt is often--but somehow not unfailingly--credited, together with Alasdair MacIntyre, Paul Ricoeur and Charles Taylor, as being one of the central voices in the philosophical turn to the concept of narrative of a generation or more ago. Some have even cited her 1958 The Human Condition as providing a particular impetus for later accounts of narrative. This essay examines what contemporary philosophical accounts of narrative might still owe Arendt, exploring her approach to narrative in theory as well as practice. (...)

  5. Arendt and Hegel on the tragic nature of action.Allen Speight - 2002 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 28 (5):523-536.
    Among the sources of Hannah Arendt's philosophy of action is an unexplored one: the account of agency in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. Drawing on a consideration of what has been called the 'dramaturgical' character of Arendt's philosophy of action, the article compares the accounts of action in Arendt's Human Condition and in the 'Spirit' chapter of the Phenomenology. Both works share a similar overall structure: in each case, the account of action begins with the opening-up of previously unseen or unexpected (...)

    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel: Heidelberg Writings: Journal Publications.Brady Bowman & Allen Speight (eds.) - 2009 - Cambridge University Press.
    This work brings together, for the first time in English translation, Hegel's journal publications from his years in Heidelberg, writings which have been previously either untranslated or only partially translated into English. The Heidelberg years marked Hegel's return to university teaching and represented an important transition in his life and thought. The translated texts include his important reassessment of the works of the philosopher F. H. Jacobi, whose engagement with Spinozism, especially, was of decisive significance for the philosophical development of (...)

  14. Caricature, Philosophy and the “Aesthetics of the Ugly”: Some Questions for Rosenkranz.Allen Speight - 2018 - In All Too Human: Humor, Comedy, and Laughter in 19th-Century Philosophy. Dordrecht: pp. 73-87.
    This article explores the distinctive artistic form of caricature and the philosophical treatment it receives in the work of Karl Rosenkranz (1805–1879), who gives it a central role in the context of his remarkable book The Aesthetics of Ugliness (Die Ästhetik des Hässlichen). Rosenkranz’ legacy on this score is not much discussed (certainly in Anglo-American philosophical circles), but its importance for the development of post-eighteenth-century aesthetics—in particular, for an aesthetics that stretches beyond the conventional concerns with the beautiful and the (...)

    “Listening to Reason”: The Role of Persuasion in Aristotle’s Account of Praise, Blame, and the Voluntary.Allen Speight - 2005 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 38 (3):213-225.
    In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:“Listening to Reason”:The Role of Persuasion in Aristotle’s Account of Praise, Blame, and the VoluntaryAllen SpeightAristotle connects praise and blame closely to the voluntary, but the question of how his discussion of these terms should be construed more broadly in the context of a theory of responsibility has been much disputed. There are some well-known difficulties with the coherence of Aristotle's views in this regard: animals and children, for (...)

    The Philosophy of Hegel.Allen Speight - 2008 - Routledge.
    Few philosophers can induce as much puzzlement among students as Hegel. His works are notoriously dense and make very few concessions for a readership unfamiliar with his systematic view of the world. Allen Speight's introduction to Hegel's philosophy takes a chronological perspective on the development of Hegel's system. In this way, some of the most important questions in Hegelian scholarship are illuminated by examining in their respective contexts works such as the "Phenomenology and the Logic". Speight begins with the young (...)

    The Sphinx and the Veil of Isis.Allen Speight - 2021 - The Owl of Minerva 52 (1):11-26.
    Jon Stewart’s recent book offers an opportunity to re-explore one of the richest areas of Hegel’s cultural research during the Berlin period, the wide-ranging study of world religions developed in the second part of his Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion. While this treatment of world religious traditions has often been taken as out-of-date and narrowly Eurocentric, there are, as Stewart suggests, important contributions within Hegel’s developing work on pre-classical and Asian religions that remain of interest to contemporary philosophers of (...)

    Hegel’s Art History and the Critique of Modernity. [REVIEW]Allen Speight - 2001 - The Owl of Minerva 33 (1):138-140.
    Whether art has come to an “end” in the modern age has been a question of interest for generations of philosophers and art critics since Hegel’s Lectures on Aesthetics. Beat Wyss takes up this question in the context of a wide-ranging account of post-Hegelian art history and art historians that has now been translated into English. Wyss’s project, whose larger aims can perhaps be better glimpsed from the book’s German title, divides into two major sets of reflections—the first devoted specifically (...)

    Moral Demands in Nonideal Theory. [REVIEW]Allen Speight - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 55 (1):153-154.
    Murphy’s book is concerned with what he calls the “puzzle of beneficence”: that, while there are many moral issues on which people tend to agree, there is not only no consensus about the extent of the obligation to promote the wellbeing of strangers, but in fact a contentedness about the uncertainty of our obligation in this regard. Although there are some famous philosophical suggestions concerning the reasons for this puzzle, Murphy claims that what is most important is our tendency to (...)

    There are relatively few recent works which attempt a serious and genuinely philosophical engagement with Hegel’s writings on aesthetics. Eschewing many of the limited ways in which Hegel is brought into conversations in contemporary literary criticism, Mark Roche has essayed a study of Hegel’s theory of the dramatic genres that seeks not simply to reiterate Hegel’s own thought, but to provide an immanent critique of Hegel’s theory that will be useful for the current critical debate.
