Slavoj Žižek mini course at Birkbeck – Hegelian Battles. December 2-4, 2015. Free for students and Birkbeck staff, £10 per lecture for others. Everyone needs to register in advance.

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. What is reconciliation? Hegel against Schiller – 3rd December
  3. Hegel in Athens: what would Hegel have said about our predicament? – 4th December
