Umberto Eco on Alienation - Dictionary of Arguments
Eco I 238
Alienation/MarxVsHegel/Eco: Hegel does not differentiate between externalization and alienation (voluntary/unvoluntary).
Eco: Hegel could not do this because as soon as the human objectifies himself/herself in the world of the things he/she has created in nature which he/she has changed, a kind of inevitable tension arises, whose poles on the one hand are the control of the object and on the other hand the complete getting lost in it in a balance that can only be dialectical, i.e. in a permanent struggle._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
