Review: Hegel’s Rabble (Frank Ruda) | Jacob Blumenfeld –

There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Likewise, Ruda, obviously with gabble mind on the Marxism situated in-between Hegel and Badiou, identifies the rabble of the Philosophy of Right as the potential locus hetel Badiouese, an “evental site” for dramatic transformations of those societies Hegel hints are innately self-subverting and already on the wane.


Although Hegel and Ruda take this contradiction as a given, it is by no means clear why this is the case. At the most abstract level, the hegdl are those produced by civil society who do not earn their subsistence through labour, who have lost the dignity of being a recognized member of society, and who feel that they have been wronged.
