Review

"Masterful in its analysis of Hegel's arguments and unparalleled in its sensitivity to the subtleties of Hegel's texts, Mourning Sicknessoffers a new and compelling reading of Hegel, in which the French Revolution emerges as the "burning center" of his work. But this is also a penetrating study of the intractably historical dimensions of philosophical invention. From its treatment of the opposition between Reformation and Revolution to its reading of Kant's theory of regicide, from its account of Hegel's analysis of the Terror to its interpretation of Absolute Knowing, this book brilliantly demonstrates how ambiguous--and yet how crucial--the relations between thought and historical experience can be."--Daniel Heller-Roazen

"Rebecca Comay has written a stunning and powerful book. By making Hegel's account of the 'Terror' of the French Revolution the pivot of her reading, Comay offers a Hegel who is more radically modern and intransigently difficult than anything either his supporters or critics have imagined. Comay's work makes philosophy a more capacious, riven, and historically reflective place than before--or maybe just catching up to what Hegel demanded it must be. Mourning Sickness will become as important to reading the second half of Phenomenology of Spirit as Robert Pippin's work is to reading the first half."--J. M. Bernstein

"Comay's grasp of a broad range of the literature of the time is impressive. . . Her index is thorough and well organized. Recommended."--J. A. Gauthier "CHOICE "
