The German Philosophy Seminar at the IGRS will host a guest lecture by Laurence Hemming on Monday, 31 October from 16:00-18:00:

Beside Myself with Indignation: Hegel, Marx and Heidegger on Alienation

Marx’s understanding of alienation has increasingly become a key not only for understanding his own work, but also for certain self-presentations of the work of the social sciences overall. Although there have been a number of important investigations of Marx’s use of the terms ‘Entfremdung’ and ‘Entäußerung’, acknowledging Marx’s indebtedness to Hegel, I argue that insufficient attention has been paid to how exactly Marx took over Hegel’s central metaphysical thought. This lecture re-examines Hegel’s influence on Marx, by asking again what Marx and Hegel meant by alienation, and asking how Marx concretised and revolutionised Hegel’s term as a central understanding of the meaning of transcendence, by returning to other interpreters of Hegel, notably Heidegger, to shed new light on Marx’s use of Hegel’s terms.

Venue: Room STB 5, Stewart House, 32 Russell Square, University of London: (
