For the last two centuries, Western philosophy has developed in the shadow of Hegel, whose influence each new thinker tries in vain to escape. As a consequence, Hegel's absolute idealism has become the bogeyman of philosophy, obscuring his dominance as the philosopher of the epochal historical transition to modernity. In "Less Than Nothing," the pinnacle publication of a distinguished career, Slavoj A iA ek argues that it is imperative we not simply return to Hegel but we repeat and exceed his triumphs, overcoming his limitations by being even more Hegelian than the master himself. Such an approach not only enables A iA ek to diagnose our present condition, but also to engage in a critical dialogue with the key strands of contemporary thought. Modernity will begin and end with Hegel.

"Few thinkers illustrate the contradictions of contemporary capitalism better than Slavoj A iA ek ... one of the world's best-known public intellectuals."--John Gray, "New York Review of Books" "A serious attempt to reanimate or re-actualize Hegel."--Robert Pippin, author of Hegel's Idealism "A gifted speaker--tumultuous, emphatic, direct--and he writes as he speaks." --Jonathan Ree, "Guardian" "The Hegel that A iA ek loves is much like A iA ek himself: a relentless iconoclast, a restless wordsmith, an inventive thinker with a hatred of received wisdom, an underminer of conventionally acknowledged truths. A iA ek's Hegel is a kind of cosmic prankster."--"Bookforum" "A lucid rendering of modern society's debt to Hegel."--"Publisher's Weekly" "The publication of "Less Than Nothing" is a major event in contemporary philosophy."--"Hey, Small Press"
