Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book Recognition German Idealism as an Ongoing Challenge, which sketches a route from autonomy to recognition. The book argues that Hegel as a systematic philosopher confronts the contemporary paradigm of recognition with difficult and far-reaching questions concerning its own foundation, both methodologically and thematically. It also discusses Hegel's theory of personality. It explores the notion of friendship in Hegel and its interpretation in the theories of recognition. Hegel is a major source for the thesis of the intersubjective formation of self-consciousness considered as recognition. However, the theories of recognition that rely on Hegel seem to claim much more than this thesis.

Keywords: German idealism; Hegel; theories of recognition
