Hegel occupies a unique position within the development of Derrida's thought, as both the antithesis of deconstruction yet its very point of departure. Derrida has stressed from his earliest work to his book-length study of Hegel, "Glas", that we must come to terms with Hegel's work and that we must still read Hegel today. Only then will we have full insight into the basic themes of deconstruction. This antagonism has been a key but crucially overlooked feature of Derrida's work and is addressed in this collection. The text presents 11 essays by some of the commentators on continental philosophy today and approaches the Hegel-Derrida question from three vantage points. Part one presents Derridean readings of some of the key themes in Hegel's work. Part two investigates the implications of Derrida's work on Hegel for our understanding of Marx and Freud. Part three, a key feature of the book, is devoted to the contemporary significance of "Glas", Derrida's full-length study of Hegel.

Page 4 - ... hebt sich auf; is sublated) by citing its own statements in a second-level discourse (autonymy) that functions to legitimate them. This is as much as to say that, in its immediacy, denotative discourse bearing on a certain referent (a living organism, a chemical property, a physical phenomenon, etc.) does not really know what it thinks it knows.
