The question we should ask is not: is “Hegel” still alive, is his thought of any use for us today? The true question is: what are we – our global capitalist world – in the eyes of Hegel? What if, from the Hegelian standpoint, we are all dead – in what sense? Wolf Bierman once wrote that, while the spiritualist question is “Is there life after death?” the materialist question is: “Is there life before death?” Are we really alive today, alive in the sense of ecstatic opening which makes life worth living?
