Hegel's doctrines of absolute negativity and 'the Concept' are between his most unique contributions to philosophy and so they represent the systematic middle of dialectical proposal. Brady Bowman explores the interrelations among those doctrines, their implications for Hegel's severe figuring out of classical good judgment and ontology, common technology and arithmetic as kinds of 'finite cognition', and their position in constructing a good, 'speculative' account of attention and its position in nature.
The Enchiridion or guide of the first-century advert Stoic Epictetus used to be used as a moral treatise either in Christian monasteries and via the sixth-century pagan Neoplatonist Simplicius.

What are its conditions of development? This is where I stop being able to endorse the crude but appealing thought with which I began. I introduced anarchist perfectionism as the claim that a free, non-dominating society cultivates ﬂourishing, independent individuals; that such individuals in turn support a free, non-dominating society; and that this is the best reason for advocating such a society. Recasting that in the light of what I have said since: the anarchist perfectionist claims that the right thing to do is to promote the Good; that the Good is human ﬂourishing, understood as the full development and successful use of certain capacities which are of central importance to human life; that independence is one important part of that ﬂourishing; and that the condition of development of independence is a free, non-dominating society.
Consider another example: John Stuart Mill’s self-emancipation from his father James Mill and from his hothouse education as the utilitarian messiah. Mill’s is a familiar story told in his Autobiography (Mill, 1981): educated at home; Greek at age 3, Latin at 8, writing articles on political economy for national newspapers before he was in his teens; editing his father’s vast textbook of associationist psychology; deliberate and ferocious honing of his analytical and rhetorical skills; and all designed to make him the best possible advocate of Jeremy Bentham’s and James Mill’s Greatest Happiness Principle.
This is not such an unusual procedure in anarchist intellectual history; after all, Bakunin developed his anarchist views in response to Marx’s. Carter begins by deﬁning anarchism (interestingly but contentiously) as ‘the [normative] opposition to certain substantive political inequalities, combined with the [empirical] belief that the state inevitably embodies, generates, and/or preserves those inequalities’ (Carter, 2000: 232). So deﬁned, anarchism is opposed to the Marxist account of revolution (which is marked by its statism or vanguardism).
