The texts concentrate on a important topos in Western concept, the tale of self-consciousness woke up in nature and in historical past. John O’Neill argues that present postmodern rejections of the Hegelian-Marxist narrative call for an figuring out of the texts integrated the following. with no Hegel and Marx in our toolbox, he argues, we are going to flounder in a global marked by way of the break up among postmodern indifference and premodern passion.

The e-book makes a powerful choice from the heritage of Hegelian-Marxist debate, hermeneutical and demanding concept, and Freudian/Lacanian and feminist remark at the dialectic of hope and attractiveness, at the degrees of social psychology and political economic climate. incorporated are articles by means of Karl Marx, G. W. F. Hegel, Alexandre Kojève, Jean Hyppolite, Jean-Paul Sarte, Georg Lukács, Jürgen Habermas, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Howard Adelman, Shlomo Avineri, Jessica Benjamin, Edward S. Casey and J. Melvin Woody, Henry S. Harris, George Armstrong Kelly, Ludwig Siep, Judith N. Shklar, and Henry Sussman.
