Example text

Rather, the opposition between the individual and the social should be dissolved through dialectics (Weir, 1996, p. 21). Hegel is misread as a purely idealist thinker not only by analytical philosophy but also by Marx and Derrida (Zizek, 1991). Hegel’s dialectic resolves the contradiction between subjectivity and objectivity, between false consciousness and rational consciousness. The Hegelian subject’s determination can be abstracted from the real into the universal, but at the point of decision, of the particular, individual subjectivity moves towards the real.

3 Reflections on Emotionality, Morality, Subjectivity, Power UTE OSTERKAMP Emotions are usually seen in contrast or opposed to thought, cognition and so on. This dualism, in turn, is based on a dichotomy, either of individual and society or of nature and culture; both, however, imply naturalising people’s subjection to the given order and a corresponding general devaluation of emotions as such. Thus, the dualism of cognition and emotion is a fundamental ideological element to justify suppressive conditions.
