Hegel and Emmanuel Faye's 'Introduction du Nazisme dans la Philosophie'

There follows a copy of my review of Emmanuel Faye's Introduction du Nazisme dans la Philosophie (Paris: Michel, 2005) in connection with Hegel, again for the list.

Emmanuel Faye's Martin Heidegger 'L'Introduction du Nazisme dans la Philosophie, now available in English, adds to a debate that's been going in France since Victor Farias' book on Heidegger and Nazism (1987) and at a lower level before that. The debate on Heidegger is particularly intense and informed in France as he was such an influence on philosophy there after Sartre.

Sketch of Hegel teaching

Hegel Tour to South Germany

I here reproduce another email to the on my trip to Hegel-related towns in Southern Germany in October 2005:

I am just back from a five day trip to South Germany to see some of the
towns associated with Hegel - Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Tübingen, Nürnberg and Bamberg -and would like to share some of my impressions with you of things that struck me as noteworthy on the basis of having read some English-language biographical sources.

Laurence Dickey's 'Hegel: Religion, Economics and the Politics of Spirit'

To give an idea of my interest in Hegel, I am reproducing below a summary of Laurence Dickey's book Hegel: Religion, economics and the Politics of Spirit 1770-1807 (Cambridge: UP, 1987) - well worth a read - from Kai Froeb's email group from November 2006.
