    Fichte’s Theory of Subjectivity.Frederick Neuhouser - 1990 - Cambridge University Press.
    This is the first book in English to elucidate the central issues in the work of Johann Gottlieb Fichte, a figure crucial to the movement of philosophy from Kant to German idealism. The book explains Fichte's notion of subjectivity and how his particular view developed out of Kant's accounts of theoretical and practical reason. Fichte argued that the subject has a self-positing structure which distinguishes it from a thing or an object. Thus, the subject must be understood as an activity (...)

  2. Rousseau's Theodicy of Self-Love: Evil, Rationality, and the Drive for Recognition.Frederick Neuhouser - 2008 - Oxford University Press.
    This book is the first comprehensive study of Rousseau's rich and complex theory of the type of self-love (amour proper) that, for him, marks the central difference between humans and the beasts. Amour proper is the passion that drives human individuals to seek the esteem, approval, admiration, or love--the recognition--of their fellow beings. Neuhouser reconstructs Rousseau's understanding of what the drive for recognition is, why it is so problematic, and how its presence opens up far-reaching developmental possibilities for creatures that (...)

  7. Rousseau's Critique of Inequality: Reconstructing the Second Discourse.Frederick Neuhouser - 2014 - Cambridge University Press.
    Rousseau's Discourse on the Origin of Inequality among Mankind, published in 1755, is a vastly influential study of the foundations of human society, including the economic inequalities it tends to create. To date, however, there has been little philosophical analysis of the Discourse in the literature. In this book, Frederick Neuhouser offers a rich and incisive philosophical examination of the work. He clarifies Rousseau's arguments as to why social inequalities are so prevalent in human society and why they pose fundamental (...)

    Hegel’s Idea of a ‘Phenomenology of Spirit’. [REVIEW]Frederick Neuhouser - 2000 - Philosophical Review 109 (2):296-299.
    Michael Forster’s latest book is a comprehensive and illuminating treatment of the basic tasks and strategies of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. As the title indicates, Forster is more concerned to elucidate the aims and structure of the Phenomenology as a whole than to reconstruct the claims of specific sections or to provide a chapter-by-chapter commentary. Forster is correct that a coherent and sympathetic account of the Phenomenology’s “official project” is badly needed, and he succeeds admirably in the task he has (...)

    Abstract Modern reflection on the ideal of personal autonomy has its Western origin in the philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, where autonomy, or self-legislation, involves citizens joining together to make laws for themselves that reflect their collective understanding of the common good. Four features of this conception of autonomy continue to be relevant today. First, autonomy, a type of freedom, is introduced into modern philosophy in order to make up for a perceived deficiency, or incompleteness, in merely ?negative? freedom (the right (...)

    This paper sets out the kind of intellectual enterprise Hegel’s science of society is by explaining its aim and the method it employs to achieve that aim. It argues that Hegel’s science of society, similar to Smith’s and Marx’s, offers an account of the good social order that is grounded in both an empirical understanding of existing institutions and a normative commitment to a certain vision of the good life. It spells out the criteria Hegel appeals to in his judgment (...)

    Die kritische Funktion der Genealogie im Denken Jean-Jacques Rousseaus.Frederick Neuhouser - 2006 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 54 (4):495-509.
    Der Beitrag rekonstruiert sowohl Rousseaus Erklärung der Entstehung der Ungleichheit als auch die Maßstäbe, die er anwendet, um die Legitimität von Ungleichheiten zu beurteilen. Nachdem gezeigt wird, dass die Eigenliebe die Hauptquelle der Ungleichheit ist, wird das Verhältnis zwischen Rousseaus Genealogie und seiner normativen Kritik an der Gesellschaft untersucht.

  23. Foundations of Natural Right.Frederick Neuhouser & Michael Baur (eds.) - 2000 - Cambridge University Press.
    In the history of philosophy, Fichte's thought marks a crucial transitional stage between Kant and post-Kantian philosophy. Fichte radicalized Kant's thought by arguing that human freedom, not external reality, must be the starting point of all systematic philosophy, and in Foundations of Natural Right, thought by many to be his most important work of political philosophy, he applies his ideas to fundamental issues in political and legal philosophy, covering such topics as civic freedom, rights, private property, contracts, family relations, and (...)

    Geistige Gesundheit und kulturelle Pathologie bei Nietzsche.Frederick Neuhouser - 2020 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 68 (1):1-27.
    This paper reconstructs Nietzsche’s conception of spiritual illness, especially as exhibited in various forms of the bad conscience, and asks what positive, ennobling potential Nietzsche finds in it. The relevant concept of spirit is arrived at by reconstructing Nietzsche’s conception of life and then considering what reflexive life – life turned back against itself – would look like. It distinguishes four independent features of spiritual illness: the measureless drive to make oneself suffer, self-opacity, life-denial, and a self-undermining dynamic in which (...)

    On Detaching Hegel’s Social Philosophy From His Metaphysics: Reply to My Critics.Frederick Neuhouser - 2004 - The Owl of Minerva 36 (1):31-42.
    This paper rebuts four objections to my attempt, in Foundations of Hegel's Social Theory, to reconstruct Hegel's social philosophy in abstraction from his metaphysics and theodicy: 1) that social philosophy requires the Logic as its ground; 2) that only an independent metaphysics can justify the norms employed by social philosophy; 3) that empirical considerations can play no role in Hegel's arguments; and 4) that, robbed of his "ontology of the self," Hegel cannot respond to romantic critics. In response to a (...)

    This paper reconstructs Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s position on the limits of legitimate economic inequality as presented in his Second Discourse. It argues that, although Rousseau’s position is egalitarian in that it places severe limits on permissible inequalities, he values economic equality instrumentally, not for its own sake but only as a means for promoting freedom and for securing the social conditions that make recognition, a central component of human well-being, available to all. The paper articulates the conception of freedom at work (...)

    Rousseau ist der erste Denker in der Geschichte der Philosophie, der das Streben nach Anerkennung durch Andere im Innersten der menschlichen Natur lokalisiert und es damit zu einem zentralen Thema der Moral-, Sozial- und politischen Philosophie macht. Der Aufsatz zeichnet Rousseaus Überlegungen zum menschlichen Streben nach Anerkennung – der Leidenschaft, die er l′amour propre nennt – in großen Linien nach und versucht dabei vorzuführen, wie sich die einzelnen Bestandteile des Rousseauschen Anerkennungsdenken zu einer ebenso plausiblen wie umfassenden Philosophie der Anerkennung (...)

Its strategy is to demonstrate the coherence and desirability of that ideal by invoking Rousseau’s concept of the general will. More specifically, the general will is supposed to provide a model for the kind of cooperation that will take place among members of a communistic society.
