(The Self and its Body in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit (Toronto Studies in Philosophy).pdf) A major criticism of Hegel s philosophy is that it fails to comprehend the experience of the body In this book John Russon shows that there is in fact a philosophy of embodiment implicit in Hegel s Phenomenology of Spirit Russon argues that Hegel has not only taken account of the body but has done so in a way that integrates both modern work on embodiment and the approach to the body found in ancient Greek philosophy br br Although Russon approaches Hegel s Phenomenology from a contemporary standpoint he places both this standpoint and Hegel s work within a classical tradition Using the Aristotelian terms of nature and habit Russon refers to the classical distinction between biological nature and a cultural second nature It is this second nature that constitutes in Russon s reading of Hegel the true embodiment of human intersubjectivity The development of spirit as mapped out by Hegel is interpreted here as a process by which the self establishes for itself an embodiment in a set of social and political institutions in which it can recognize and satisfy its rational needs Russon concludes by arguing that self expression and self interpretation are the ultimate needs of the human spirit and that it is the degree to which these needs are satisfied that is the ultimate measure of the adequacy of the institutions that embody human life br br This link with classicism in itself a serious contribution to the history of philosophy provides an excellent point of access into the Hegelian system Russon s work which will prove interesting reading for any Hegel scholar provides a solid and reliable introduction to the study of HegelDownload and Read Online books ePub/PDF/Audible/Kindle, its easy way to streaming The Self and its Body in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit (Toronto Studies in Philosophy) books for multiple devices.
