Master-slave dialectic: This is about the dynamic development of skills and competencies resulting from proximity to the work process, as well as dependencies resulting from a distance from this process. According to Hegel, there may ultimately be a reversal of the power relationship. See also governance, capabilities, dependency.

Alexandre Kojève on Master-Slave Dialectic - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 814
Governance/Slavehood/Kojève/Drury: Unlike Hegel, Kojève shifts the relationship between Governance and Slavehood to the world-historical last instances Stalin and the communist world state. He sees the latter better able to satisfy the basic social needs of all people than the Prussian state envisaged by Hegel. (KojèveVsHegel). Later, Kojève transferred this goal to the American Way of Life. (1)
KojèveVsHegel: in Kojève, unlike at Hegel, in the end the slave and thus the masses, win over the master. But since the slave embodies the weak, the cowardly, the small and the animalistic, the victory of the slave over the master ends in a rule of mediocrity or in the driving of a reanimalized humanity into undesirably happy consumption. ((s) According to Drury, Kojève does not carry out Hegel's dialectical movement, according to which master and slave converge.) See also History/Fukuyama.
DruryVsKojève: this is a "fascist interpretation" of the struggle for recognition. (2)
>Hegel, >Master/Slave/Hegel.
