    An Entire Nest of Contradictions: Re-Examining Hegel’s Critique of the Kantian Moral Subject.James A. Dunson Iii - 2011 - International Philosophical Quarterly 51 (1):23-38.
    Defending Kant against the charge that his ethics is formalistic has prompted some prominent interpreters to stress the “humanity” formulation of the categorical imperative. In this paper I argue that this more sophisticated account of Kantian ethics generates a deeper and more philosophically interesting Hegelian criticism. Hegel’s claim that the moral worldview is rife with dialectical conflict serves as a criticism both of Kant’s conception of the moral self and of his more basic assumptions about the proper philosophical reply to (...)

    Picturing Hegel: An Illustrated Guide to Hegel’s Encyclopaedia Logic.James A. Dunson Iii - 2010 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 48 (4):536-538.
    If Hegel were alive to read an illustrated guide to his Encyclopaedia Logic, he might not immediately appreciate the project. Not only did he consider “picture-thinking” deficient in comparison to conceptual thinking, but he regarded the Encyclopaedia Logic as a text suitable for German students. In her recent book, Picturing Hegel, Julie Maybee acknowledges these ironies and proceeds to guide those of us who need a little extra help in understanding Hegel’s speculative logic.What results is a significant contribution to the (...)
