These unique contributions specialize in Hegelian research and the transformative worth of the philosopher's idea when it comes to our present "turn to religion." Malabou develops Hegel's motif of confession when it comes to forgiveness; Negri writes of Hegel's philosophy of correct; Caputo reaffirms the novel theology made attainable by way of Hegel; and Bosteels reviews stylish readings of the thinker and argues opposed to the reducibility of his dialectic.
