Symposium: Hegel and the power of the negative in nature, history and philosophy


With Katherine Everitt, Wolfgang Hottner and Eirik Fevang

Georg Wilhelm Hegel is a spectre that haunts modern thought, both Anglocentric analytical philosophy, central European philosophy and eastern Marxist philosophy. In our time, this spectre has become even more present as a Hegelian renaissance within international philosophy, both in the East and in the West, is currently taking place.

What is it about the thought of this strange German idealist that the modern world cannot escape? Hegel is the philosopher of ghosts, of Geist, of negative force, of the undead, the skull. At the end of the Phenomenology of Spirit, he goes so far as to declare the whole of world history to be a Golgatha, a place of skulls, crucifixion: death.

Salongen and Litteraturhuset i Bergen have invited PhD scholar in philosophy from New York, Katherine Everitt, and associate professor in literature at the University of Bergen, Wolfgang Hottner, to a conversation about Hegel and the force of the negative within nature, history and thinking. The conversation will by lead by Eirik Fevang, philosopher and PhD scholar at UiB.

130/60,– (stud./honnør).
