The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities presents:

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.

2 December 2015 Lecture 1:  Against recognition: a critique of the liberal reading of Hegel (Pippin, Brandom)

3 December 2015 Lecture 2: What is reconciliation? Hegel against Schiller

4 December 2015 Lecture 3: Hegel in Athens: what would Hegel have said about our predicament?
