We are able to understand, explain, sum up, augment and correct the way we understand ourselves through our understanding of the the social constitution 23 other. The extraordinary thing is that the other, too, can make her own speech an object, thus enabling her to understand both us and herself via our understanding. This represents the acme of what we might call human self-consciousness. It is not a monologic phenomenon, as though people are directly conscious of themselves and are directly present to themselves, as is argued in what is known as idealistic philosophy of consciousness, but a dialogic phenomenon, because being is founded in the social process of human communication: self-consciousness is essentially inter-subjective.

Even the idea of possible forgiveness is mooted. From all this it may be inferred that the principle of retribution is fundamentally about respect for life and the preservation of life.

He was a moderate liberal and a defender of the modern constitutional state (Rawls 2000, 352–353). the social constitution 19 identity (Hegel 1988, 127–132). In other words, the constitution of the human being is not individualistic nor autarkic but social, being based on the dialectic of mutual recognition of identity and difference. To think that this is a kind of ideal image, remote from physical reality, that can only originate in the mind of a speculative philosopher is a mistake. To add cogency to his idea Hegel gives an incisive analysis of the master-servant relationship, which, in its asymmetry, appears to be a negation of his insight into the meaning of mutual recognition.
