It is said also that in the early twentieth century two schools of Hegelian philosophy faced each other: the right-Hegelians in the guise of the fascists, and the left-Hegelians in the guise of the Marxists and communists. There is something to this, but to imply that Hegel is to blame for both would be an indictment too far. Yet the contrast does precipitate thought. There is an unbroken line of continuity between Hegel and the young Hegelians, hence a line of inheritance from Marx, though the line is... Read More

The book is concerned with the type of dignity that can be lost, destroyed, but also regained through the... Read More
