2 Hegel’s discussion of this link between the interior and the exterior, between the inner life of consciousness and the external world of objects and others, is one of the threads that is shot through the fabric of my book because it allows me to flesh out my model of binding. The second aim of this chapter, therefore, is to prepare for an exploration of the shift from the intersubjective to the intrasubjective realm and back again in the “Self-Consciousness” chapter. It is important to understand the activity of Force itself in order to understand the move that Hegel makes in “Self-Consciousness” and his formulation of the famous master/ slave dialectic as a play of Forces.
In order to see the way in which I am drawing my own concept of intersubjectivity as a play of Forces out of Hegel, I will situate my reading of the concept of Force. 52 The standard reading of the “Force and the Understanding” chapter, which, of course, is still valid, holds that through his examination of Force, Hegel is critiquing standard methods of scientific enquiry as he saw them, predominantly in the work of Newton, Leibniz, and Kant. Rather than trace this critique, I aim to see how Hegel uses the concept of Force as a way of prefiguring the subsequent movements of consciousness, reworking and translating the play of Forces into the realm of self-consciousness.
The first two chapters are devoted to close readings of Hegel’s philosophy, and the second two chapters are devoted to elaborating on this reading via psychoanalytic theory. The psychoanalysts focussed on here are not being used as representative of psychoanalysis as a universal practice but have been chosen because they allow for the most fruitful work with the formulations of my Hegelian model. To be more precise, I will be using the two bodies of psychoanalytic writing as “case studies” of sorts for scrutinising our notions of the subject that I take out of my reading of the Phenomenology.
