Hegel rejected Kant's model of the isolated (transcendental) , self validating ego in favour of a moral epistemology that appealed to the intersubjective communality of praxis in history and culture. This latter can be described as a 'dialogical' model of the subject. I argue that the latter (dialogical) account of the mutual recognition between agents leading to the acknowledgment of reciprocal rights and duties presupposes the deontic self-awareness that underpins the 'principle of generic consistency' (PGC) in Alan Gewirth's ostensibly 'Kantian' model of agent rights.
