Macherey’s deliberate inversion of chronology is important here since his arguments reveal the paradoxical Spinozism of some of Hegel’s positions. The translation of Hegel or Spinoza is Macherey’s meticulous undoing of Hegel’s reading of Spinoza, in order to expose a deeper connection between the two philosophies, nicely accentuates some of the tensions framing recent discussions within contemporary continental political philosophy, where the perceived merits, and precise political utility, of Hegel and Spinoza’s philosophy continue to be debated.

We welcome work that engages with and furthers a range of critical epistemological approaches, puts theory to work in innovative ways, and consciously navigates the fraught politics of knowledge production within and beyond the academy.

He argues that Spinoza’s philosophy of substance requires no notion of subject, or negativity, to drive itself forward, and that his critique of teleology, together with the very productivity of his concept of causa sui give rise to a dynamic concept of substance.

Badiou later assessed his debts to Spinoza, and critiqued the ontological basis of Spinoza’s thought; Macherey published over a number of years a five-volume study of Spinoza’s Ethics. Substance does not precede its modes or lie behind their apparent reality, as a metaphysical foundation or a rational condition, but, in its absolute immanence, it is nothing other than the act of expressing itself immediately in all its modes, an act that is not itself determined through the relations of modes to each other but that is to the contrary their effective cause p.

However, whilst Hegel’s process-like formulation is compromised, in the last instance, by his evolutionism, there nonetheless remains something within his notion of infinity that draws him closer to Spinoza, for whom eternity escapes duration and ‘coincides with its infinite existence in act’ p.

Hegel views Spinoza’s measured and purely rational usage of negation as eliciting a too formal, and restrictive meaning, being associated solely with those finite modes, which have a determined existence and can, therefore, contain contradiction or differencebut not with substance itself, which remains resolutely positive and expansive p.
