Hegelian distinction:

  • Things for consciousness.
    • Content of a judgment. Something explicit. Something thinkable/sayable in declarative sentences. that clauses.
      • These stand in relations of material incompatibility and implication.
        • Hegel understands these relations in terms of the role that judgeable contents play in the rational integrative process of new commitments with old (“unity of apperception”)
  • Things to consciousness
    • Hegel says something to consciousness is the difference between things for consciousness and things in themselves.
    • A functional matter - how things are implicitly treated by consciousness. Consciousness practically distinguishes what things are for it, and what they are in themselves. Consciousness is their comparison.

Self conscious agents have an understanding of the world which includes themselves + their perceptions as embedded in it.
