  Insight and Attitude: on Hegel, Morality, and Law

30 May 2015

With Karen Robertson

Recommended Reading: Hegel. Elements of the Philosophy of Right. Passages: 133,134, 136 - 139 and Hegel's Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences, Passages: 488 - 491, 538, 539

Karen explains her talk:
Human contexts demand that we negotiate between our interests and the interests of others, and this negotiation has different demands in different context; the demands I face as, for example, a friend, family member, or teammate, differ from the demands I face as a legal subject or home owner. While in both contexts, we depend on others to enable (or undermine) the possibilities that define us as individuals, the nature of these different contexts require that we attend differently to our interdependence. Hegel’s discussion of “Morality” in the Philosophy of Right demonstrates that we fail to recognize the significance of interpersonal relationships so long as we negotiate such relationships with recourse to an abstract sense of the good. Meanwhile, as Hegel details in the Encyclopedia, our participation in public, political life requires precisely that we respond to what is “universal” and that we recognize embodiments of this universality—Law and its supporting institutions—as appropriate to a shared world. Through a comparison of these two domains, we will consider the significance of our subjective attitudes towards our inter-subjectively constituted contexts, focusing especially on (a) the relationship between our attitudes and the quality of our insights and perception and on (b) the relationship between insight and perception, on the one hand, and the meaningful realization of personal and political freedom, on the other hand.
