Abstract for "Power as Control and the Therapeutic Effects of Hegel's Logic":
than approaching the question of the constructive or therapeutic
character of Hegel's Logic through a global consideration of its
argument and its relation to the rest of Hegel's system, I want to come
at the question by considering a specific thread that runs through the
argument of the Logic, namely the question of the proper understanding
of power or control. What I want to try to show is that there is a close
connection between therapeutic and constructive elements in Hegel's
treatment of power. To do so I will make use of two deep criticisms of
Hegel's treatment from Michael Theunissen. First comes Theunissen's
claim that in Hegel's logical scheme, reality is necessarily dominated
by the concept rather than truly reciprocally related to it. Then I will
consider Theunissen's structurally analogous claim that for Hegel, the
power of the concept is the management of the suppression of the other.
Both of these claims are essentially claims about the way in which
elements of the logic of reflection are modified and yet continue to
play a role in the logic of the concept.
