      1. Buck-Morss’s latest book has been called revelatory; in it she charts the hitherto forgotten connections between the development of Hegel’s master-slave dialectic and the slave-led revolution in Haiti, happening at the same time. This analysis is overlaid with an argument for a kind of ‘universal history’, which would allow for the elided, repressed, and forgotten dynamics between history, theory, politics, and philosophy to be returned to view as we consider the current political and social context of today.
