Notes

Abstract: This thesis offers an interpretation of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. Whereas the standard account might read the Phenomenology as the revelation of successively superior understandings of the self proceeding teleologically, here we'll reexamine self-consciousness as a cultural object that is itself produced immanently. Accordingly, we'll eschew a logic of recognition-revelation for a theory of productive negation and generative desire. In the first chapter, we'll set forth our conceptual framework and engage secondary texts in order to craft a theory of generative desire adequate to support the historical production of self-consciousness. In the second chapter, we'll examine key moments in the Phenomenology: the Master-Slave dialectic, Protestant Christianity of Revealed Religion, and Unhappy Consciousness as the crucial link between them. In the third and final chapter we'll reexamine Absolute Knowing--the supposed transcendent telos of the Phenomenology--as a new perspective on immanent production through desire and its internal constraints.
