By Stephen Houlgate

This learn of Hegel and Nietzsche evaluates and compares their paintings via their universal feedback of the metaphysics for working with conceptual oppositions comparable to being/becoming and egoism/altruism. Dr Houlgate exposes Nietzsche's critique as utilising the excellence of lifestyles and inspiration, which itself constitutes a metaphysical dualism of the sort Nietzsche assaults. through comparability Hegel is proven to supply a extra profound critique of metaphysical dualism via utilising his philosophy of the dialectic, which sees such alleged opposites as defining parts of a dynamic. In picking out to review a topic so basic to either philosophers' paintings, Houlgate has confirmed a framework in which to guage the Hegel-Nietzsche debate; to make the 1st complete learn of Nietzsche's view of Hegel's paintings; and to match Nietzsche's Dionysic philosophy with Hegel's dialectical philosophy by means of targeting tragedy, a subject matter primary to the philosophy of either.

MAKING HARLEM BLACK 43 The Latino presence in Harlem is important because Harlem's lore is often offered up as a multicultural one, as a minoritarian community that easily accommodates other people of color within its diasporic folds. Botanicas and bodegas line the streets. Caribbean cuisine is bought and sold.

Everything white folks got-money, diamonds, all of that-they don't have a Harlem anywhere. And you can't buy it, either-and they trying. But money can't make a Harlem, and that is why they will never get this place. It belongs to the same poor black people they trying to kill off and lock up. What they say about Harlem is they own lies. Damon's invocations of what people are saying about Harlem is a direct indictment of the media's portrayal of this place: a crime-riddled, MAKING HARLEM BLACK 39 seething black slum that is the scapegoat for demagogues on all sides trying to leverage the rhetorical power of the symbolic black world.

There are days when Bernice threatens to leave Harlem herself, arguing that she needs to take her degree and parlay it into something substantial down in rural North Carolina, away from all the crime and craziness of the big city.
