>But truly to escape Hegel involves an exact appreciation of the price we have to pay to detach ourselves from him. It assumes that we are aware of the extent to which Hegel, insidiously perhaps, is close to us; it implies a knowledge, in that which permits us to think against Hegel, of that which remains Hegelian. We have to determine the extent to which our anti-Hegelianism is possibly one of his tricks directed against us, at the end of which he stands, motionless, waiting for us.

In what context does he say this? How can anti-Hegelianism be just one of Hegel's tricks? Is it because every new philosophy can be interpreted as just another step towards the Absolute?

>> No.11271627

Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism are both part of the dialectic, which confirms Hegel's dialectic..

>> No.11271643

That was my thought. But how is that particular to Hegel? Don't all the great "theory-building" philosophers claim there is nothing beyond their philosophy? Taking Schopenhauer's philosophy you could say that every attempt to overcome his philosophy is just a particular manifestation of the will perceived through our limited senses.

>> No.11271646

You examine Hegelianism, you find flaws, you react against it, become anti-Hegelian, then you realize the Anti-Heglian reaction to the Hegelian is the dialectic and therefore Hegelianism may have faults but the extent of its dialectic truth cannot be fully rejected, thus the synthesis.

Reminder that Hegelianism justifies the Holocaust as a temporary necessity.

That's why you become a messianic Marxist like Walter Benjamin

this kind of mental gymnastics is why nobody understands Benjamin when he talks about history

anyway, his work is still part of the dialectic

Benjamin's concept of messianic time. It's Paul without Christ....you've read Benjamin, right?

I have. I also read the Bible. Not sure what you are getting at. I guess I missed the part where Paul says that the path of progress leads only to destruction and we need a revolution to save us.

A very uncanny imagine. Imagine if you put on They Live glasses and you started seeing Hegel's face everywhere.

This is why based Kierkegaard was correct to take the antirationalist position. As long as you cling to reason Hegel is invincible and inescapable.

girardfag worries me because becoming a kantbot miniature e-celeb is one of the great counter-initiatiory cul-de-sacs of this pivotal world-historical moment

i think all the girardfags and proto-girardfags out there, even the kantbots, should take a step back and ask "is what i'm writing right now actually pushing me or others toward qualitatively higher knowledge? or am i spinning my wheels as a consolation prize for there being nothing else to do, no reward for all my seeking up until this point, except to come down off the mountain and do parlour tricks for the plebs?"

kantbot is all speed with no acceleration, he's falling back into the reign of quantity by ceasing to be novel and generative, and becoming merely explicable, by a formula like "i guess one of these alt right faggots was eventually going to be a real grad student with some talent and authenticity instead of just some fag watching evola youtube videos. it makes sense taht there would eventually be A Kantbot"

if kantbot wants to be more than A Kantbot and girardfag wants to be more than A Girardfag they shouldn't fall into the same trap all the french niggers did by becoming so good at weaving metaphors and associative complexes together and such "erudits" that they don't do anything fucking else, again all speed with no acceleration. the better you get at this shit, the more garbage articles you can churn out for upstart faggot twitter magazines, and you just plateau, as a little gay sorcerer who can do some magic sparkles for the rubes. faust is supposed to get bored of his parlour tricks and strike out again on a new homoerotic shaman quest, not accept the parlour tricks and the trickle of dopamine he gets for showing them off as his fag reward for a lifetime of failures.

i hate these niggers. i don't like these big jerkoff threads. i don't like the fucking french and the academic bigwigs and zizek wannabes who hit the wall of What Can Be Done With Philosophy So Far As We Know It, get a single drop of authentic initiation from their journey, and immediately go "Well I guess taht's it then" and start writing IRONIC!!! HEGELIAN ANIME ANALYSES. i'm a 60th level heidegger mage, dual classed into all kinds of weird GIRARD shit.. i'd better impress rubes by showing how effortlessly i can see girardishly while looking at th emovie "Johnny Mnemonic".... isn't it cool that i can be both an amazing philosophy sorcerer while also being so laid back and casual about it?

the entire 1960s was a mind parasite invasion counter initiation psychic trap for the species, and the french were its hollowed-out zombie servitors. in fact they did the same thing with the enlightenment. the french have to be stopped. they set this whole gay pussy trend of being counter-cultural while also being a master philosopher. i want german angst back. adorno saw some tits and died of fright. where are the adornos? everyone's jerking themselves off on twitter.

Hegel's dialectical "reason" is not reason at all.

>> No.11272268

It definitely leads to a more purer form of reason.

>> No.11272285

It amounts to a form of structured imagination.

Doesn't mean it isn't a tragedy, just something that is at risk of happening and then will pass. You could say the same about every massacre in history. Was Hegel supposed to condemn all human action?

You can blame the holocaust on every important western thinker. Plato could be considered the god father of genocide.

Maybe, but from a Kantian point of view, we might argue that we bring something to the table in order to have experience at all.

That's a presumption though. Hegel formulated his logic through the ideal.

>> No.11274456

It is impossible to be anti-rationalist. It presupposes logic in order to make its case. Any yes can only exist by the existence of a no. As soon as you have logic you have Hegel, as his initial movements are the inevitable consequence of logic.To be anti-hegelian is to be completely incoherent and naive. You can't escape him except through lack of understanding and confusion.

Doubt logic. Doubt Being itself. It's impossible to do either. To doubt is to utilize logic within Being. They are self evident and self necessary. Schop didn't understand Hegel, he just hated him because he wrote like a prick.

>> No.11274544

I think he understood pretty well that using phrases like "self-evident" to describe an almost empty abstraction like "Being" in service of the "Absolute" is not very far from the "self subsistent, absolutely necessary Being" proclaimed by the Ontological proof (which Kant derided). Schopenhauer called Hegel's philosophy "nothing but a monstrous amplification of the Ontological proof."

>> No.11274551

It's impossible to doubt logic and it's impossible to doubt being and Hegel's philosophy is a direct consequence of the unfurling of logic. He can't be refuted, at least not his most critical points.

>> No.11274602

There could not be less connection to the ontological argument.
