Example text

The bondsman initially substitutes the lord in that he provides his body in the place of the lord’s, yet that body, embodied as an instrument of labor, is a transient object and subject to death. The bondsman recognizes the limit of this formative capacity and thus engages in a movement where the absolute fear is allayed through a resolution and reconciled to a stubbornness, smugness, or religious contentment of a certain mode of living. Butler explains that “terror is allayed through a resolution of stubbornness or, rather, through the action by which terror of bodily death is displaced by a smugness and stubbornness that .

This reflective understanding of consciousness is indeed formatively self-terrorizing. Hegel conceptualizes a more strict sense of consciousness by which the understanding of consciousness can be seen as having shifted from the bondsman’s servitude into the notion of there being an unhappy consciousness that comes about as a result of the bondsman’s self-reflexivity. It is a life-and-death battle in the sense that it is a battle that requires an overturning of bodily death to a mode of living.

The relationship of identity and difference consists of a relationship of ontological difference, in a relationship of what I have and what I do not have. Thus, the existence of being is caught in a series of ontological differences. The ontological difference of identity and difference has been the base for the Same or the Other in Hegelian discourses. The ontological relationship of identity and difference, or the Same and the Other, is also seen in Hegelian political discourses and is applied in dualist hypotheses such as right/wrong, male/female, friend/ enemy, domination/resistance, and the oppressors/the oppressed.
