Rózsa (philosophy, U. of Debrecen, Hungary) presents a fascinating study of the complicated subject of the modern individual found in Hegel's philosophy. This subject is not a simple identity, a Cartesian cogito even, confidently self-present and the basis for knowledge, but a sometimes contradictory and otherwise problematic consciousness. Her study is organized into three sections that begin by introducing individuality from the perspective of Hegel's theory of modernity and his "system." The second and third parts interrogate forms of life and identity, identity crises in the modern age, and the education of modern consciousness. In the end, Rózsa outlines four types of individuality found in modern (romantic) art: Christ, the Knight, the Comedian, and the Honest Citizen. The latter type is the key figure of modern individuality, replacing great personalities of past eras. This text is translated and does not include a general index. Names, however, are indexed.
