This project aims to understand the dynamics of appropriation of social roles as a dimension of self-alienation in the work Alienation by Rahel Jaeggi. We will be guided by the following question: What are the main contours of a non-alienated appropriation of social roles? Therefore, we will follow the following path: initially, we intend to recover the concept of alienation from the resumption of the path that the author herself presents when approaching the works of Hegel, Marx, and Heidegger. Then, always guided by the guiding thread presented by the author, we intend to emphasize the analysis of a specific dimension of alienation, namely, self-alienation. Finally, we will seek to investigate the way in which Jaeggi describes the process of appropriating social roles as a form of self-alienation. With this analysis path, we intend to gather elements to answer the question that guides this project. (AU)
