Chapter 1 of my new book--Hegel, Marx, and the Necessity and Freedom Dialectic: Marxist-Humanism and Critical Theory in the United States https://marxist-humanistdialectics.blogspot.com/2018/03/coming-out-in-may-necessity-and-freedom.html
includes a discussion relevant to a recent interview of the Hegel scholar R. Pippin in the online magazine 3:A.M.
3:AM: What do you say Hegel meant by the unity of the idea of the true and the idea of the good in the ‘Absolute Idea’?
RP: This is too much for a short answer, or even a long one. It’s really the whole ballgame in Hegel.

Table of Contents for Work In Progress: Can the Philippines' Revolution Re-emerge? Humanism and Social Transformation
Chapter 2 of my new book, Hegel, Marx, and the Necessity and Freedom Dialectic: Marxist-Humanism and Critical Theory in the United States (http://marxist-humanistdialectics.blogspot.com/2018/03/coming-out-in-may-necessity-and-freedom.html) describes Herbert Marcuse’s break with Martin Heidegger’s existentialism in the former’s two 1932 works: Hegel’s Ontology and the Theory of Historicity, and “New Sources on the Foundations of Historical Materialism”.
I am including a link to the Table of Contents for my work in progress—Can the Philippines’ Revolution Re-emerge? Humanism and Social Transformation. Included are papers I presented from the early 2000s to 2016 at universities in the Philippines on Critical Theory and Marxist-Humanism, which attempt to show the relevance of Marcuse and Raya Dunayevskaya’s developing critical social theories in the context of revolution and counter-revolution in the Philippines.
