Show Summary Details


This chapter shows how the movement of consciousness by a process of introjections develops and how Phenomenology of Spirit moves from examining abstract consciousness to communities in history. It argues that mourning characterises this movement, but that the ways in which the lost object is introjected changes depending on the community within which the death occurs. The chapter examines the initial attempts of consciousness to effect this type of introjection in the struggle for recognition and the master/servant dialectic.

Keywords: consciousness; introjections; Phenomenology of Spirit; death; master/servant dialectic
