Sample text

As a person, a slave is free in himself, but he may not be free for himself. A student may be a future doctor and professor, but may not know it. Finally, the terms an sich and für sich can mean either potentiality or actuality, and be used in reference to development. When a person becomes for himself what he is in himself, then he usually recognizes his identity; in semiotic terms, he becomes meaningful to himself. The foregoing linguistic excursion has prepared us for further reasoning about individual subjectivity.

But before we can make a complete, “existential- 16 Chapter 1 Introduction to a Philosophy of Music semiotic about-face” from Hegel, we must first see what Søren Kierkegaard made of the notions of an sich and für sich. In his philosophy, they turn into subjective and objective being. In the chapter “Becoming a subject” of his treatise Unscientific Ending: Postscript, Kierkegaard speaks about an individual who is said to be a subject, an individual “who is what he is because he has become like it” (see Kierkegaard 1993/1846).

This progression of a subject, from an sich being to a für sich being, corresponds to his becoming a sign to himself, that is, to the emergence of his identity. Kierkegaard says the task of a subject is to shed his subjectivity more and more, thereby becoming more and more objective. The objective being is the same as observing and being observed. But, in Kierkegaard’s theory, this observation has to be of an ethical nature. The next careful reader of Hegel – as well as of Kierkegaard – was JeanPaul Sartre, whose L’être et le néant (1943) was to a great extent based upon Hegelian concepts of an sich and für sich; or in Sartre’s terms, être-en-soi (being-in-itself) and être-pour-soi (being-for itself).
