Ideology, Rhetoric, Aesthetics

Andrzej Warminski

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter presents a commentary on what is perhaps de Man's most difficult essay, ‘Hegel on the Sublime’. It attempts to explain how de Man draws political implications out of Hegel's sublime. Although the chapter is mostly an active paraphrase of de Man's argument, it may contain one bit of actual ‘reading’ at the end in its response to Marc Redfield's claim that de Man makes a mistake and tries to have Hegel's text say what it in fact does not say.

Keywords:   Paul de Man, aesthetic ideology, Hegel, sublime, Marc Redfield
