Which constitutes 40 41 30 French Hegel the finitude of every determination, is not excluded from the absolute" (GS 584/564; see L E 101/130), and since finite determinations must be mediated and negated, even in the absolute, the self finds itself "in the tragedy of its alienation" (GS 351/340). The self that "finds itself through a rending and a separation" is thus the "foundation of the Hegelian dialectical schema" (GS 385/372-73) in its entirety, from finite consciousness to the Logos of Being.

Once this "anthropological turn" has been taken, the differences between Kojeve's supposed dualism (of Spirit and nature) and Koyre's (and others') more orthodox "monism," or between Kojeve's view that "the end of history" is central to Hegel's thought and Koyre's view of it as an aporia, are of little consequence. The importance of thesis of "the primacy of the future" in later French thought is manifest. It is the primacy of the future that prevents consciousness from ever catching up with itself to form a closed totality, rendering 28 29 30 31 32 33 28 French Hegel consciousness "an unhappy consciousness with no possibility of escaping its unhappy state" in Sartre's philosophy.

It would be hard to overemphasize the importance of Wahl's criticisms of Hegel or his interpretation of Kierkegaard. The echoes in Sartre, particularly in the interrelated themes of contingency, anxiety, and vertigo, are striking enough, but so is the insistence on difference, dispersion and dissemination, later given so much play by Deleuze and Derrida. Derrida, it might be thought, has an altogether different project, since his philosophy seeks to displace consciousness as a primary term in favor of writing.
