Spirit Transcendence: Entrepreneurs’ Ego Development

Xiaojiang Ji, Wen Yan


Traditional literatures have analyzed entrepreneurship in terms of its characteristics under the frame of social-economic development, lacking discussions from individual’s perspective. This paper, based on the theories of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Mind and Marx’s The Econimic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844, explores common features of entrepreneurs’ ego development. It can be concluded that entrepreneurs’ ego development encompasses three stages, the first stage, desire Consciousness, the second, morality Consciousness, and the ultimate stage humanity Consciousness.
