In a sense we can see why Hegel was destined to float into Rus via Marx: He avers the autonomous might of the double negative as do Russian grammarians!

Parenthetically - as your panel no doubt already knows - the Slovenian 'Hegel expert' Zizek has read Hegel no better then Hegel's early students and Bertrand Russel etc.. In fact Herr professor doctor Zizek merely appropriates a standard para-consistent logic and calls it a reading of Hegelian dialectics! (Giving the idiotic and false example of the un-dead as a supposed double negation.)

This was not Hegel's intent at all! Kojeve made a better reading.
