Genealogies (Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Foucault) present the revenge of naturalism on rationalism. Hegel teaches us how to replace the genealogical hermeneutics of suspicion with a hermeneutics of magnanimity that allows us to see naturalism and rationalism as complementing rather than competing with one another.
Professor Brandom is a philosopher of language, and the author of Making It Explicit and Between Saying and Doing: Toward an Analytic Pragmatism. He is currently working on a book on Hegel with the title A Spirit of Trust: A Semantic Reading of Hegel's Phenomenology, and pursuing a project investigating the logic and semantics of nonmonotonic consequence relations.
