This chapter traces the development of Rose's speculative philosophy through her reception of Adorno and Hegel. Her reading of Hegel in Hegel contra Sociology underpins all her subsequent work and is the key to understanding her approach. Rose presents a ‘radical Hegel’ whose thought offers a way of resisting the rigid dualisms of Kantian philosophy. For Rose, Hegel's emphasis on recognition takes political theory away from thinking in terms of abstract universals or radical particularity, attending instead to the ways in which individuals are situated in relation to one another as well as social and political actualities.
