‘Subjects in the Ancient and Modern World: On Hegel’s Theory of Subjectivity’ by Allegra de Laurentiis

Published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2005.


Being a subject and being conscious of being one are different realities. According to Hegel, the difference is not only conceptual, but also influences people’s experience of the world and of one another. This book aims to explain some basic aspects of Hegel’s conception of subjectivity with particular regard to the difference he saw in ancient and modern ways of thinking about and acting as individuals, persons and moral subjects.

Allegra de Laurentiis is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. She has been teaching and writing on the history of Western philosophy for the past twenty years.
