This article compares the ideas of Hegel, Nietzsche and Fanon on the dynamics and outcome of relationships of domination and subordination. By examining these authors' views on various aspects of these relationships--for example, the significance of the Other, the roles of ressentiment and of labor, and the importance of aggression--the article identifies differences and commonalities in their discussions.
