Slavoj Zizek – Hegelian Battles – 3 Lectures
The battle for Hegel goes on – new interpretations are emerging which perhaps pose an even greater threat to Hegel’s legacy than the usual rejections of Hegel. This series of lectures will provide a cognitive mapping of this twisted terrain, with the aim to redeem Hegel for the radical thought.
Chair: Dr Maria Aristodemou (Birkbeck)
4 December 2015 Lecture 3: Hegel in Athens: what would Hegel have said about our predicament?
