FRANK RUDA HEGEL RABBLE PDF

Qty : Please note there is a week delivery period for this title. In Hegel's Rabble , Frank Ruda identifies and explores a crucial problem in the Hegelian philosophy of right that strikes at the heart of Hegel's conception of the state. This singular problem, which Ruda argues is the problem of Hegelian political thought, appears in Hegel's text only in a seemingly marginal form under the name of the "rabble": a particular side-effect of the dialectical deduction of the necessity of the existence of state from the contradictory constitution of civil society. Working out from a thorough analysis of this problem and drawing on contemporary discussions in the work of such thinkers as Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy and Slavoj Zizek, the book proceeds to re-examine and reconstruct Hegel's entire political project.

This singular problem, which Ruda argues is the problem of Hegelian political thought, appears in Hegel's text only in a seemingly marginal form under the name of the "rabble": a particular side-effect of the dialectical deduction of the necessity of the existence of state from the contradictory constitution of civil society. Working out from a thorough analysis of this problem and drawing on contemporary discussions in the work of such thinkers as Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy and Slavoj Zizek, the book proceeds to re-examine and reconstruct Hegel's entire political project.

Ruda goes on to argue that only by re-thinking this problem of 'the rabble' in Hegel's thought - the only problem Hegel is able neither to resolve nor to sublate - can the early Marxian conception of 'the proletariat' be properly understood. The book closes with an Afterword from Slavoj Zizek. Luxury-Rabble vs. Without Attitude? Taking the supposedly marginal notion of the "rabble" from Hegel's Philosophy of Right, Ruda elevates it to the status of a proper, yet paradoxical philosophical category.

Paradoxical, because it marks a fundamental irritation of philosophy by politics, and calls for the transformation of the former. Relating this transformation to the passage from Marx to Hegel, Ruda revisits this passage from a highly original and non-standard perspective, allowing for important contemporary philosophical debates of politics to resonate in it. An extremely compelling and original philosophical work, it is on its way to becoming a classical reference in future philosophy-politics debates.

Particularly interesting is his analysisof the two rabbles so often in the news today: the poverty rabble, so-called"hippies," "rioters," and "scum," and the luxury rabble, the financialcapitalists who wreaked havoc on the world economy with their reckless gamblingand speculation.

No philosophical work is more relevant for understanding thecontemporary crisis. Ruda's carefully argued and well-supported reconstruction of Hegel's Philosophy of Right as embedded in the Hegelian edifice as a whole challenges received wisdom about Hegel himself and Marx's relations with him. It also brilliantly illuminates the main problems at the heart of contemporary leftist socio-political theorizing.

Ruda has made a major contribution to both Hegel scholarship as well as current discussions of Marxism and post-Marxism. Hegel's Rabble is mandatory reading for anyone interested in Hegel and radical leftism today.

This alone is an enormous accomplishment. But like any transformative analysis of this sort, Hegel's Rabble is not only a meticulous reconstruction of an historical object; it is the reactivation of a force that shapes our own present and opens onto the future.

Smith, Radical Philosophy. This is obviously a major claim, and consequently the book will be of interest to Hegel scholars and students of modern political thought more generally The book will also be of interest to students of contemporary left-Hegelian theory.

Hegel's Rabble

In both his early Jena-era Philosophy of Spirit and later Berlin-period Philosophy of Right , Hegel highlights perhaps the sole problem for which he does not offer a solution. With his solid grasp of British economics and the modern political economies of his time, one of the many fashions in which Hegel paves the way for Marxism consists in his realization that bourgeois industrial capitalism inevitably creates, as one of its necessary by-products, an ever-growing mass of immiserated people hurled into hopeless poverty. The objective alienation of this aggregate of dispossessed and disenfranchised poor, relentlessly produced without mercy by the mechanisms and machines of industrialization, creates the conditions for a subjective alienation embodied by the rabble, with its hostile attitude to the rest of society and brute sense of indignant entitlement. Moreover, on Hegel's assessment, no modern society yet appears to be willing and able adequately to address this internally generated self-undermining factor of rabble-rousing impoverishment. Without doing so, these historically youthful collective systems are at risk of destroying themselves sooner or later. Hence, rather than marking a pseudo-Hegelian "end of history," such societies, Hegel insinuates, have a very uncertain future ahead of them.
