Crisis and Critique: Hegel(‘s) Today

Journal Volume 4, Issue 1, 2017


“According to Marx’s famous saying, “Hegel remarks somewhere that all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.” Displacing this well-known quip, if only a bit, one might ask: Does this also hold for world-historic personages and facts of philosophy? Could one read Hegel’s philosophy itself as first, the tragic event? . . .”

Crisis and Critique, is a journal of political thought and philosophy, appearing two times a year. It has international authors and editorial board. Our commitment is equally between three disciplines: philosophy, psychoanalysis and politics.
