In the opening of her volume Approaching Hegel’s Logic, Obliquely: Melville, Molière, Beckett, Angelica Nuzzo writes: «This is an unconventional book on Hegel’s logic». And indeed it appears «unconventional» in several respects: within we find the synchronic reading of the Hegelian logic; the use of Aristotle’s Poetics to facilitate the translation of the logical categories into a performative – almost theatrical – language of the logical categories; and, above all the highly original elaboration of a comparison between logic and literature which evidences the validity and vitality of Hegel’s logic in contexts other than the abstract one in which it is often thought.
