The act of reconciliation heals broken relationships among variously oriented human subjects, thus making them project a more livable society in mutual respect. Insofar as the source of conflicts lies in human relationship, reconciliation has been the term to refer to the recovery of the most profound relationality that promises the well-being of the entire humanity. In this paper I present Hegel’s dialectic of reconciliation based on the “Spirit” chapter of Phenomenology of Spirit, in a way to show how the actualization of reconciliation between differently oriented people has been necessitated through historical paradigms that Hegel dialectically conceptualizes. As the dialectic develops, Hegel’s conceptual scheme of reconciliation resolves itself into a distinctive perspectival way of interpreting the world: the confrontation between acting consciousness and judging consciousness. This paper attempts to explain how this perspective emerges in a theoretic fashion through which we can examine our own world of conflicts today.
