This Introduction explains that Hegel’s Theory of Intelligibility focuses on Hegel’s theoretical philosophy in order to show that what Hegel calls a “logic” is a theory of intelligibility that responds to the ambivalent development of modernity. It argues that Hegel’s modernism resides in his assessment of the truth of modernity revealed by its concrete development. It thereby introduces the two main concepts that the book develops--normative precariousness and normative ambivalence. It also clarifies that these two terms are a product of a pluralist strategy that does justice to strengths in contemporary analytic and continental readings of Hegel.
