After hearing much praise for the cogency of Marcuse's ideas, I was disheartened to find that he seems to have inherited the same impenetrability of thought as Hegel himself embodies and Kant too sometimes reaches in the more strained arguments of his Critique of Pure Reason. I am still holding out hope that I might be able to get some idea of how to comprehend the string of subjectless predicates qualifying other subjectless predicates that Hegel employed and his German interlocutors inherited. For now, though, Marcuse's remains nothing more than earnestly-stated gobbledygook. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0262631253, Paperback)

This was Herbert Marcuse's first book on Hegel, written in the early 1930s. It provides a still unequaled Heideggerian reading of Hegel's thought that seeks the defining characteristics of "historicity" - expressing a tradition known as "phenomenological Marxism," subsequently represented by Jean Paul Sartre, among others. The book is important both for understanding Marcuse's philosophical relationship to Heidegger and for illuminating his original and creative reading of Hegel and his Hegelian brand of critical Marxism.

Hegel's Ontology and the Theory of Historicity is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy
