I stumbled across this new book in UNSW’s bookshop last week: Simon Lumsden’s Self-Consciousness and the Critique of the Subject. Simon is a well-known Sydney philosopher, and a specialist on Hegel. It will be good to read a detailed account of the hegelian inheritance of the latter three thinkers, and the points that gel, beyond the rhetoric. Especially Derrida, for my purposes. Stephen Houlgate comments, for instance, just how much Derrida has done to promote philosophical research with Hegel. But on the other hand, Hegel is, of course, also the point against which he wishes to distinguish himself. So, some interesting issues to negotiate in this book.
