Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorRon Kelch
In the March 2001 News & Letters, John Alan's Black/Red column, "Hegel and Black history," was an appreciation and critique of Susan Buck-Morss' original article "Hegel and Haiti" where she took the whole world of Hegel scholarship to task for not even considering that the Black masses in the Haitian Revolution of 1803 were the source for Hegel's famous narrative on the master/slave relation in Hegel's Phenomenology. In 2009 Buck-Morss added a discussion to answer her critics along with her original article in a book, Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History.

This Sunday, October 5 at 6:30 pm we will discuss Buck-Morss' dialog with her critics, especially John Alan.
