  1. ‘Dramaturgy of the Dialectic’ by Rebecca Comay | Concept/s: Hegel’s Aesthetics

    Concept/s: Hegel’s Aesthetics Conference Ljubljana 11-14 January 2018 Hosted by Aufhebung International Hegelian Association

    Rebecca Comay Dramaturgy of the Dialectic


    The temptation is to pit the Aesthetics against the Phenomenology: the one provides a museum or mausoleum of dead artworks, the other presents an open-ended artistic experiment. The one examines art from Olympian heights of absolute knowing, the other mobilizes and transforms art from (almost) within: philosophy of art vs the art of philosophy—mention vs use, constative vs performative, Hegel’s Aesthetics vs Hegel’s aesthetics. This opposition in turn recalls the contrast between Aristotle’s Poetics and Plato’s dialogues: the former provides an anatomy of tragic poetry, the latter disarms tragedy by sublimating and absorbing its resources for philosophy. Things aren’t so simple, of course, but I’d like to understand why. I’ll be exploring the theatrical elements of Hegel’s Phenomenology. How does Hegel’s dramaturgical practice relate to this ambivalent praise of drama, at the end of the Aesthetics, as the “highest” - which means also the most self-overcoming or self-relativizing — of all the arts?

    Concept/s: Hegel’s Aesthetics

    Hosted by: Aufhebung – International Hegelian Association

    Invitation and programme [PDF]


    Organizing committee: Mirt Komel, Bara Kolenc, Martin Hergouth, Ana Jovanović, Goran Vranešević

    The Concept/s conference is conceptually affiliated with the symposium What’s in a name? organised by Maska, Institute for Publishing, Artistic Production and Education, an accompanying event for the exhibition Janez Janša (curated by Domenico Quaranta and co-produced by MG+MSUM and Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art), to be held the 10 January 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova.



    Hegel’s lectures on Aesthetics–perhaps the least explored work by the author of the Phenomenology of Spirit–is part of the vivid German tradition stretching from Lessing, Kant, Schiller, Goethe, to Nietzsche, Heidegger, Adorno, and others. Hegel’s philosophy of art encompasses a wide range of topics, from ancient architecture to modern theatre, from religious paintings to secular literature. However, the most interesting interventions by Hegel are not only those that were influenced or that themselves influenced the distinctive philosophical discipline of aesthetics, but also those that provided us with a very precise conceptual apparatus for our own contemporary debates on art. One prominent example is Hegel’s thesis that art became more and more philosophical in the course of its history according to the logical development of the idea(l) of beauty; a thesis that was the springboard for speculations about the end of art and that anticipated different debates regarding the status of conceptual artworks. All these themes are significant not only for contemporary art theories, but can, even more importantly, redefine the status of philosophy as such.

  3. Philosophers Zone - 27 November 2010 - Hegel and Hegel’s God

    http://www.abc.net.au/rn/philosopherszone/stories/2010/3077690.htm This week, in another trek through the luxuriant and fascinating jungle that is the thought of one of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, we turn to Hegel’s god and look at Hegel as a rational mystic.

    Our guest again is Robert M. Wallace, a philosopher best known for his book Hegel’s Philosophy of Reality, Freedom and God, and a man with a keen interest in philosophical mysticism.

    Liberal theologians during the last century and a half have wanted to articulate a conception of God that could satisfy people’s spiritual longings without conflicting with Darwinian evolution and other well-established scientific discoveries. Robert Wallace believes that Hegel had already done this

  6. Philosophers Zone - 20 November 2010 - The Mystery of Hegel

    His thought was hugely influential and hugely difficult. The philosopher Bertrand Russell once described him as the single most difficult philosopher to understand. He was Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Though he enjoyed relative fame during his lifetime, in the decades after his death in 1831, according to one writer, Hegel’s ideas were treated with "a mixture of contempt, horror and indifference."

    But something happened during the 20th century that brought Hegel back into sight for philosophers and thinkers. This week on The Philosopher’s Zone find out what that was. From http://www.abc.net.au/rn/philosopherszone/stories/2010/3071671.htm

  7. Slavoj Zizek “The Actuality of the Absolute: Hegel, Our Untimely Contemporary”

    Hegel is the ultimate bête noire of the last two centuries of philosophy:proponents of Lebensphilosophie, existentialists from Kierkegaard onwards, materialists, historicists, analytic philosophers and empiricists, Marxists, traditional liberals, religious moralists, deconstructionists and Deleuzians, they alldefine themselves through different modalities of rejecting Hegel. But when enemies start to speak the same language, it is a reliable sign that something is eluding them all. So what if something happens in Hegel, a break-through into a unique dimension of thought which was obliterated, rendered invisible, by the so-called post-metaphysical thought? What if the ridiculous image of Hegel as the absurd “absolute idealist” who “pretended to know everything” is an exemplary case of what Freud called Deck-Erinnerung (screen-memory), a fantasy-formation destined to cover up a traumatic truth? The task of the symposium will be to unearth aspects of this traumatic truth.

    While the global political and social situation is getting more and more explosive, emancipatory struggles are more and more hampered by ideological prejudices. This is why some ruthless clarifications are necessary.

  9. PHILOSOPHY - G. W. F. Hegel

    The German philosopher Hegel believed that strange and alien bits of history have much to teach us. History and civilisation do not move in a straight line, so important ideas and attitudes get left behind. Through Hegel’s dense, unappealing prose, some brilliant ideas stand out.
