Against it--casting aside Hegel's theology--we should question how readily it can be adopted to Hegel's classical account of the limitation, and ultimately the Aufhebung, of painting to the two dimensional, pointillist instant--along with its concomitant speculative demand that art be surpassed by the truth of historical realization, where sensibility and speculative sense remain staunchly linked.
Asi, la critica a Hegel tiene que ver tambien con la asociacion entre dialectica y trabajo, es decir, con la dialectica entendida como movimiento de mediacion y superacion (Aufhebung) y, a partir de alli, como esfuerzo, elaboracion, ejercicio y tarea.
La disolucion real es una falsa Aufhebung porque destruye y tiene a la nada por resultado, mientras que la disolucion ideal tiene un ser determinado y una nueva experiencia con lo divino.
In fact, if the relation between the two moments is a rupture, there can be no position of the passage--a cut a break is an emptiness--and that there is no position of the passage means that the first moment is out of the second, the second can only appear as a result (in an abstract sense), which replaces the first (...) Well, it is only if the second moment, even though contradicting the first, retains it as a denied moment (or, if one wishes, it is only if the contradiction is thought in terms of Aufhebung) that one could say that the working class loses its product.

Una dialectica diadica que prioriza al individuo sobre los procesos sin entender que aquel deba ser absorbido, subsumido, y, por tanto, disuelto por la "aufhebung" hegeliana.
El pensamiento critico negativo desplegado por ambos autores no se subsume a una nihilista y petrificada negacion sin mas de lo existente, sino que su dialectica negativa incorpora la unidad (inestable) que "supera" la Aufhebung. En este sentido, no es una negacion que se agota en si misma, como pura actitud negativa ante la realidad factual, que termina declinando a la dimension pragmatica e inmediata de las recetas que se presentan como soluciones y que transforman este ejercicio critico en bloqueos de su propia dinamicidad.
But he also finds himself defending autonomy against its usual critics, recognizing that if art and the aesthetic are to be political--i.e., if they are to have something to say to the contemporary world--and if the only fusion of art and life (Aufhebung) isn't simply the "obscene double of aesthetic practice," namely "commodified leisure and lifestyle," then the notion of some kind of autonomy remains indispensable.
