Gothenberg University


My talk will be an attempt to explore in which ways Hegelís philosophy could be actualized as a key element in a political philosophy which takes its point of departure, not in reason, sociality or autonomy but in

exposure, vulnerability, and dependence.

She completed her Ph.D. in 2007 at Gothenburg University, and her dissertation Att vara utom sig inom sig: Charles Taylor, erkšnnandet och Hegels aktualitet (Being without oneself within oneself: Charles Taylor, recognition, and Hegelís actuality) deals with the notion of recognition in political philosophy.
