Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer: A Hegelian logic of ‘Us’: Implicit Forms and Explicit Representations of Actions and Practices

20.3.2019

On behalf of the LMS Center, we would like to invite you to an internal seminar led by:

Prof. Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer
(Universität Leipzig / KFSV FF UHK)

who will speak on:

"A Hegelian logic of ‘Us’: Implicit Forms and Explicit Representations of Actions and Practices."

ABSTRACT: In order to understand Hegel’s gnomic oracle according to which the I is a We, the notion of a personal subject is explained by its competence to perform personal roles in a pre-given partition of roles. Explicit divisions of labour by contractual promises are special cases that presuppose the general case of an already established social practice. On the other hand, methodical individualism is right to stress that we actualize joint intentions only via corresponding instantiations. In performing our parts, we form a plural subject, a we-group. The result of what each of us does is what we do, and the generic We turns into the generic I.

When: March 27, 2019 from 14:05 till 15:40
Where: Philosophical Faculty UHK, Room #B9
