Recognition and communication. The ethics between Hegel and Kierkegaard


  • Arne Grøn Universidad Libre de Berlín



ethics, recognition, love, communication


Kierkegaard and Hegel are figures of orientation in modern philosophy. The article addresses the question how is ethics to be understood if we take as our lead the notion of self-relation in relation to others, in re-intcrpieting Hegel and Kierkegaard. In the first part, the issue of the normative dimension of recognition is discussed, through an interpretation of Hegel's theory of recognition in Phenomenology of spirit chapter IV A. In the second part, Kierkegaard’s second ethics in works of love is interpreted as an Ethics of vision. It is argued that recognition, as a way of seeing the other, is a communication in which a self-relation in relation to the other is at issue.
