Rowan Wilson24 October 2014

Both Less Than Nothing and Absolute Recoil are major investigations of Hegel's thought. We asked Zizek which books on Hegel inspired his writing. Here's the list (in no order):

Mourning Sickness: Hegel and the French Revolution  - Rebecca Comay

The Future of Hegel: Plasticity, Temporality and Dialectic  - Catherine Malabou

In the Spirit of Hegel - Robert C. Solomon

The Persistence of Subjectivity: On the Kantian Aftermath - Robert Pippin

Hegel Variations: On the Phenomenology of the Spirit - Fredric Jameson

L' envers de la dialectique: Hegel à la lumière de Nietzsche - Gerard Lebrun
