This is a powerful book masterful in its textual command, sharply argued, and well-positioned to intervene in the current revisionist debates regarding Hegel s status as a non-metaphysical, irreversibly post-Kantian, thinker. Zambrana engages Hegel s modernity precisely at the point where his thought is usually taken to regress most. Far from serving up a sophisticated recycling of some kind of pre-critical rationalist ontology, as is so often assumed, the Science ofLogicbecomes the site where Hegel s modernist credentials are most sharply revealed. --Rebecca Comay, University of Toronto"
The greatest virtue of Zambrana s book is that it weaves together the best elements of interpretations that are often taken to be incompatible. The Hegel presented in these pages is both historicist and metaphysical, a theorist of both intelligibility and normative ambivalence. By refocusing attention on Hegel s modernism and on his conception of determinacy, Zambrana provides a new impetus for the renaissance in research on Hegel s Science of Logic. --Dean Moyar, Johns Hopkins University"
Through a reinvigorating reading of the Science of Logic and other key texts, Zambrana not only convincingly challenges standard accounts of Hegel but also demonstrates the relevance of his most daunting work for contemporary reflections on the precarious nature of any determinate norm or practice --Karin de Boer, University of Leuven"
