Der späte Husserl spricht von dem ,Ur-Ich’ als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre, das dem Anderen einseitig voranginge. Der Terminus ,Ur-Ich’ zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an.

Example text

When the dialectic of consciousness becomes the dialectic of self-consciousness, the social and historical dimensions of the dialectic become inescapable, and the movement progressively bursts the bonds of the relatively simple formula of implication exhibited in the first three chapters. As a slave consciousness over against a master consciousness, consciousness will not affirm its autonomy at all; safeguarding life is too important. As stoic or skeptic consciousness it will affirm its autonomy, but only the empty autonomy of abstract thought or sheer negation.

No one can honestly say that too much has been written on this most seminal and most difficult thinker; if anything, too little has been written. It is important to know from the outset, however, just what sort of book this purports to be, just what it seeks to accomplish. 1 It is in no way intended as a substitute for a reading of Hegel's own words, nor to make unnecessary subsequent readings. The author hopes, however, in some degree to spare others the tortures he himself had to go through in coming to terms with the intricacies both of Hegel's thought and of the language in which he expresses that thought.
