G.W.F. Hegel on Competition - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 329
Competition/Phenomenology/Hegel/Höffe: In competition with his or her peers, the human does not first depend on self-assertion, but already on the constitution of a self. Hegel adds three further topics to the debate, which is often conducted on the basis of social, legal or state theory:
a) the human's confrontation with him- or herself,
b) confrontation with nature and
c) the concept of work belonging to the three dimensions.
In the fight against violent competition (...) he discovers (...) a far more fundamental task and ultimate achievement: "People do not initially become finished subjects, but must first acquire the necessary self-confidence in a dynamic process. In the complex course (...) of a veritable "fight for recognition", three dimensions interlock:
- the personal confrontation of the individual with him- or herself,
- the social with his or her peers and the
- economic with nature.(1)
>Self-Consciousness/Hegel, >Master/Slave/Hegel.
