The Notion of Authority

The Notion of Authority by Alexander Kojève Does your company have a product in need of marketing? The Albemarle Tradewinds staff will set-up locations, market your product and sell business to business for you. Give us a call intellectuals philosophy Marx dualism Hegelian Heidegger Strauss Bloom Fukuyama thought reason splits unity totality illusion master slave recognition equality existentialism Alexandre Kojève (April 28, 1902 – June 4, 1968) was a Russian-born French philosopher and statesman whose philosophical seminars had an immense influence on 20thcentury French philosophy, particularly via his integration of Hegelian concepts into continental philosophy. As a statesman in the French government, he was instrumental in the creation of the European Union. Kojève was a close friend of, and was in lifelong philosophical dialogue with, Leo Strauss. Kojeve was known as an influential and idiosyncratic interpreter of Hegel, reading him through the lens of both Marx and Heidegger. The well-known “End of History” thesis advanced the idea that ideological history in a limited sense had ended with the French Revolution and the regime of Napoleon and that there was no longer a need for violent struggle to establish the “rational supremacy of the regime of rights and equal recognition.” Kojeve’s “End of History” is different from Francis Fukayama’s later thesis of the same name in that it points as much to a socialist-capitalist synthesis as to a triumph of liberal capitalism.

OUR CHAMBER KEEPS GROWING AND GROWING! By: Kelly Thorsby Due to the limited space in our current location, the chamber has created a Capital Campaign Fund so that we can expand our current building or move into another. Offering a larger space to our members will allow for more educational opportunities, more networking events and a more professional atmosphere for our members. Plans include a new conference room with audio visual equipment, an electronic community events board and large kitchen to host several events. Current member dues will not be raised, instead we will host some enjoyable fundraisers and offer naming opportunities to our members. Our first event is Saturday, August 8 at Morgans Corner Pulling Park as we host a Celebration Concert of our USCG City Designation and our local military! $28 tickets are on sale now at the chamber and all local Duck Thru locations. This ticket includes a concert with Emily Minor, CMA Star Ray Scott, Old Southern Moonshine Revival and Outlaw 21 along with a delicious Combo Platter from Leon Nixons Catering! Kids 6 and under are free and kids 7-12 years pay $10. The concert is 4-10pm (gates open at 3pm) and features a Kids Fun Zone with Bounce Houses, Monster Truck Rides, Face Painting, Train Rides and more! We then host our first CHAMBER-OKE Contest on Thursday, September 24! This event will be entertaining and enjoyable for the community and the first of its kind. So we need YOU!
