It is the claim of this thesis that central to any reading of the work of Gillian Rose is an understanding of her development of Hegel's thought. This thesis accordingly examines Rose's work through a comprehensive reading of Hegel contra Sociology. It is argued that an irresolvable aporia is discovered at the heart of Rose's reading of Hegel which, this thesis argues, manifests itself through the question and answer of style. It is argued that Rose simultaneously undermines the presupposition of style and at the same time reinforces it. It is also argued that this is consistent with Rose's acknowledgment and critique of prevailing social relations. It is argued in conclusion that Rose's work is both simply an expression of aporia which undermines the question of style and at the same time is itself also aporetic which thus reinforces the question of style.
