Among the many thinkers belonging to the modern tradition, Hegel is the most incompatible with today’s post-1989 absolute capitalism. His thematisation of historicity in the time of the end of history, his conception of communitarian subjectivity in the time of individualistic anomie, and, furthermore, his valorisation of the ethical State with the primacy of the political in the age of the deregulated market, prove to be prolifically irreconcilable with today’s liberalist order.
Diego Fusaro’s book sets out to examine some of the main theoretical points in Hegel’s work so as to bring them face to face with today’s spiritual animal kingdom of global economic fanaticism.
