The article addresses the strange relationship between politics and philosophy, a relationship that is determined by peculiar asymmetries, by critically discussing the work of French anthropologist, Sylvan Lazarus. It demonstrates from a Hegelian perspective that philosophy is able to think that and what “politics thinks” in a historically singular way and thereby does not fall prey to the criticisms raised against it from the “thinking of politics in its interiority” (Lazarus).
