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

Adorno XIII 62
Subjectivity/Idealism/Spirit/Hegel/Adorno: ... one is then compelled to extend the subjectivity beyond the individual consciousness. In Hegel this means the idea (...), this is now nothing else than the principle of the spirit, which is to be independent of the individual human beings and their epitome, and which itself, and, in fact, motivated, should be the absolute, that first constitutes everything conditional.
The assumption that this consciousness is in the different individuals of the same kind of logicality and the same logic is implied.
We/Idealism/Adorno: this "we" is, in fact, just the very epitome of the empirical subjects; it cannot be a constitutive, transcendental subject.
>Subject/Hegel, >Transcendentals, cf. >Idealism.
XIII 128
Spirit/Hegel/Adorno: if the truth is to be the whole in Hegel, then as a process, so that the truth is realized.
XIII 129
This is the new concept of the spirit in a concise sense, that is, spirit is the epitome of the world, or the epitome of reality as far as it has passed through the specific spiritual experience of the individual human being.
>Experience/Hegel, >Subject-Object-Problem, >Intersubjectivity.
HegelVsKant/Adorno: this knowledge determines the objects as things in themselves and not as mere phenomena.
