" He who in·disregarding an offense to honor, i. e. , who even though attractiveness has been refused him clings to existence, is in truth a slave held via the chain of normal lifestyles.

" Sim-ilarly, obstinacy is just proposal to confinn freedom and is, actually, a fonn of rebellious dependency. by contrast, if paintings is to be the root of actual self-consciousness , it needs to derive from what i've got tenned above "consciousness of ability," anything which will take care of the "universal may well [death} and goal fact" (150). Hegel additional develops this concept of freedom of a~ility by means of emphasizing that the fonnative job eancels adversarial, existent shape.
