Example text

For it is in this relation that singularity remains distinct. Nonetheless, this thinking of singularity undergoes the teleological constriction that dialectics enforces. Hence what is natural difference in the theater of the family becomes an ethical opposition. As such, speculative thought recovers itself – recovers itself from the thought of difference and hence the suspension of the dialectic itself – and moves on to the articulation of spirit. Thompson succeeds in mapping out the space of the point of almost absolute proximity between deconstruction and speculative thought.

This, then, accounts for the tragic role of the sister in Hegel’s description of the family. Once the resistance of the feminine is overcome, the true work of the speculative can continue in the relation between the father and son: a relation that comprises the foundation of the Hegelian community. Kimmerle argues, however, that there will always be a remainder to the work of spirit upon nature. The figure of the feminine – which in Hegel is represented by Antigone – comprises an exemplary instance of what remains in the wake of the holocaust of absolute knowledge.

Under the guidance of Foucault, the human and the culture that it is a moment of – in all its discursive and non-discursive practices, no matter how seemingly mundane – become a signifying system in which the stakes are always power. In particular, Foucault emphasized the Kojèvian notion of the master/slave dialectic. Indeed, it would not be too much of an exaggeration to suggest that the crux of Foucault’s thought is to be found in Kojève’s reading of Hegel. Running throughout Foucault’s work is a fascination with the drama of selfconsciousness.
