  • You can run, but you Kant hide!

    When doing the Very Important research for our Hegel or L Ron Hubbard quiz we came across some fun Hegel related gifs (see bottom right) and even created one of our own (bottom left)! So, in the interests of doing something vaguely amusing on a Friday (and getting some free books at the same time) we want you to send us your favourite Hegel gifs, or have a go at making your own. They can be moving, still, whatever you like! Bad photoshopping is very much welcomed as is anything rude, obscure and unusual!

    At the end of the day we'll pick our 10 favourite gifs to win a copy of Žižek's new book Absolute Recoil: Towards a New Foundation of Dialectical Materialism AND Fredric Jameson's The Hegel Variations. Details below!
