G.W.F. Hegel on Morality - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 791
Morality/Sittlichkeit/HegelVsHobbes/Hegel/Honneth: (Honneth refers here to Hegel's early Jena writings (1)): Hegel develops a concept of morality, which in principle has a progressive thrust and therefore also points "beyond the institutional horizon" of Hegel's own presence.(2) The social struggle of individuals for recognition has a distinct dynamic; in Hegel it proves to be an event open to the future that can never be finished. With the motif of recognition, Hegel inscribes a fundamental tension in his understanding of social life that integrates the social conflicts between individuals and groups into the historical horizon of a moral progress process that is open to the future.
