Philosophers Index Abstract

    Basic arguments of a theory of self-consciousness1 are explained in this comparing investigation. In kant's concepts of apperception, synthesis a priori and "thinking of myself" are to be found dispositions for a critical-idealistic theory of subjectivity. Hegel's early and late critique of kant is shown to be a metaphysical one. In spite of that hegel clarifies the relation between thinking of myself and objectification, and so he carries on the theory of subjectivity.
