'Andrew Hass' Hegel and the Art of Negation is a comprehensive and magisterial rethinking of Hegel, not only calling forth a truly contemporary Hegel, but a new Hegel: a Hegel at the very center of thinking as such, and of all thinking, or all truly critical and universal thinking.
Thomas J J Altizer, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies, The State University of New York, Stony Brook
Here is a truly artistic homage to the artistry at the heart of Hegel's thought: the sheer restless negativity that forever differentiates Hegel from Hegelianism,or perhaps Hegelianism from other '-isms'. In this enjoyable text Hegel returns...as freshly thought-provoking and challenging as ever.
Andrew Shanks, Canon Theologian, Manchester Cathedral, author of Hegel's Political Theology and of Hegel and Religious Faith
This is an engaging and provocative exploration of the Hegelian art of negation. Andrew Hass is well informed about Hegel himself as well as the latter s commentators and critics. The book is important for trying to bring Hegel's view of art into proper communication with the full dimensions of Hegel's overall philosophical venture. --William Desmond, Professor of Philosophy, Katholieke Universteit Leuven and David R Cook Visiting Professor of Philosophy, Villanova University, author of Hegel's God
"Here is a truly artistic homage to the artistry at the heart of Hegel's thought: the sheer restless negativity that forever differentiates Hegel from 'Hegelianism', or perhaps Hegelianism from other "-isms". In this enjoyable text Hegel returns - negating the negation he must, of course, also undergo - as freshly thought-provoking and challenging as ever." --- [Andrew Shanks, Canon Theologian, Manchester Cathedral, author of Hegel s Political Theology and of Hegel and Religious Faith]
