    Hegel after Occupy

    Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen

    Hegel after Occupy is a Western Marxist analysis of different attempts to understand the present historical situation and the way theories of postmodernity, globalization, and contemporaneity implicitly or explicitly conceptualize the relationship between the historical present and political action. They all persuasively describe a breakdown of former historical categories but paradoxically end up understanding this breakdown as the end of politics tout court. Analysis and “position” thus merge, and the analytic diagnosis of a disavowal of the future (and the past) ends up as a disavowal of politics.
