In the second case, human feelings and interests are seen as continuous with morality, so it is human nature that provides the starting point for the discussion and development of moral concepts. The two interpretations are clearly in tension. Hegel does not reveal which one he favors. On the contrary, the moral terms he uses to articulate his criticism of the positivity of Christianity – and also his criticism of Judaism as a ‘positive’ religion – draw equally on both conceptions of human morality.
In the “Love” fragment, Hegel focuses on the problem of knowledge of God (rather than of the moral law). ’ As the position of ‘something dead’ is taken up by various objects (people, God, things in the world) and the subject himself, the love-as-loss relation is exhausted. At this point Hegel indicates that a new relation of love can emerge if the original experience of nullity can be re-described. This remains a highly abstract and quite formal exercise. 13 The central idea is that “nothing is unconditioned; nothing carries the root of its own being in itself … each is only relatively necessary; the one exists for the other” (ETW 304; 378).
Even assuming we had access to such action-guiding intuitions, we would not be able to tell why any specific norm rightly commands assent and is not just a matter of ad hoc conviction. It is important to note that Kant’s test for what can be universalized is in part conceived to free us from such chimerical pursuits. What remains a problem for Hegel is that within the Kantian critical framework, it is difficult to identify with any confidence a specific content – this action, this end – that is rational and free in the requisite sense.
