Hegel’s Theory of Intelligibility offers an interpretation of the Science of Logic in light of recent revisionist readings of Hegel. Revisionists have argued that Hegel carries the legacy of Kant’s idealism forward albeit in a new direction. This book transforms this interpretive tradition by distilling the theory of normativity elaborated in the Logic and pursuing the implications of Hegel’s signature treatment of negativity for this theory of normativity. The book thereby clarifies crucial features of Hegel’s theory of intelligibility previously thought to be entirely absent from the argument of the Logic—normative precariousness and normative ambivalence.
