9781786600233: Creolizing Hegel (Creolizing the Canon)

The 19th-century German thinker G.W.F. Hegel is a towering figure in the canon of European philosophy. Indeed, most of the significant figures of European Philosophy after Hegel explicitly address his thought in their own work. Outside of the familiar territory of the Western canon, however, Hegel has also loomed large, most often as a villain, but sometimes also as a resource in struggles for liberation from colonialism, sexism and racism. Hegel understood his own work as aiming above freedom, yet ironically wrote texts that are not only explicitly Eurocentric and even racist. Should we, and is it even possible, to bring Hegelian texts and ideas into productive discourse with those he so often himself saw as distinctly Other and even inferior?

In response to this question, Creolizing Hegel brings together transdisciplinary scholars presenting various approaches to creolizing the work of Hegel. The essays in this volume take Hegelian texts and themes across borders of method, discipline, and tradition. The task is not simply to compare and contrast Hegel with some 'outsider' figure or tradition, but rather to reconsider and reconfigure our understandings of all of the figures and ideas brought together in these cross-disciplinary essays.

Review:

Creolizing Hegel is unquestionably the most important collection of critical essays on Hegel to be published in years. None of the essays simply reject Hegel as a simply Eurocentric thinker, although all engage with his Eurocentrism. More importantly, these essays are comprehensive and cover the arch of Hegel's work. This book will be essential to anyone who is interested in political theory, ethics, and jurisprudence. The sophistication of the essays provides a much needed critical engagement with a thinker who has been both controversial and influential in the entire body of philosophical work in the 20th century. (Drucilla Cornell, Professor of Political Science, Comparative Literature, and Women and Gender Studies, Rutgers University)

The originality of the organizing theme and the essays in Creolizing Hegel offer something unfortunately missing in a good deal of recent Hegel studies—and much work on canonical thought, for that matter—over the past few decades: something new to say. This installment of ideas inaugurated by scholars from the Caribbean Philosophical Association, especially the groundbreaking writings of Jane Anna Gordon and Michael Monahan on the creolization of theory, is no less than the birth of a classic. (Lewis R. Gordon, author of What Fanon Said)

"The creative inventiveness of the contributors to Creolizing Hegel shows how alive philosophers can be today to drawing surprising connections in their efforts to place philosophy in the service of liberation." (Robert Bernasconi, Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Philosophy and African American Studies, Pennsylvania State University)
