The I That Is Weâ•… 31 History effectively begins with an act of misrecognition: an act Hegel recounts as the master-slave dialectic (1977, §178–98; §413–39), which famously describes the first meeting of two primeval human beings. Both have a sense that they are unique conscious beings while simultaneously being vaguely aware that they each belong to a universal species. Crucially, they only suspect that their particular and universal natures are true but they do not know for certain; they cannot be sure until they gain recognition of another human consciousness.

The problem thus becomes similar to that seen in prudential obligation: institutional obligations cannot exist for their own sake, but must be backed by some further moral command. As Simmons (1996) suggests, the problem is one of external justification: We are morally obligated to perform our institutionally assigned “obligations” only when this is required by a moral rule (or principle) that is not itself a rule of the institution in question. Institutions, in short, are not normatively independent, and the existence of an institutional “obligation” is considered, by itself, a morally neutral act.
