Hegel's Master-Slave Dialectic: From Unconscious to Conscious Freedom

Few passages in philosophy have influenced the history of the western thought as much as the master-slave dialectic that appears in G.W.F. Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit (1807). Marxism, post colonialism, theology and the existentialist feminism of Simone de Beauvoir. In Hegel’s account, the master gains his freedom by owning a slave as he would otherwise not have leisure. By owning a slave he can define himself as free as opposed to the unfree slave. However, when the slave... [More]

This course is not just about learning philosophy, but about philosophising for yourself. SUGGESTED READING Baumgarten, A. G.: Ethica philosophica [Philosophical Ethics], 3rd Ed.

This 3 part course is an attempt to construct a clearer, more coherent conceptual framework for making sense of the physical world. Part 1 - What the World Must Be Like: We... [More]
