Hegel French Revolution

Hegel in France: The French Reception of Hegel 1933 to 1952 is a one-day academic conference, which will be held at Clare College of the University of Cambridge on Saturday 18 May 2019.  We will discuss the French reception of Hegel, beginning in 1933, when Alexandre Kojeve began his famous lecture series on the Phenomenology of Spirit, and continuing with the publication of Jean Hyppolite’s Logic and Existence in 1952.  

We aim to explore three interpretive traditions in the reception of Hegel within French philosophy between 1933 and 1952.  Studying the French reception of Hegel shows how the interpretation, adoption, and rejection of Hegel’s thought has moulded much of 20th-century French philosophy.  The French reception of Hegel can also help to illuminate the hidden lines of continuity between German and French philosophy today.
