The Absolute Spirit would sublate conflicts by accepting both sides of an argument and derive a synthesis through rational processes. For Hegel, dramas center less on internal flaws of the protagonist than on intractable conflicts. The distinctive suffering derives from external actions that precipitate a reaction creating a collision of incommensurable wills, purposes, and forces. ”122 Conflicts of family and state, as exemplified by Sophocles’s Antigone, represent modern drama for Hegel; plays that depict conflicts by relentlessly intransigent one-sided positions constitute the grounds of collision.
He hated the status quo; yet he was a medal chaser. He defended women’s rights; yet he was probably a philanderer. He read voraciously and knew virtually every important thinker of his age; yet he denied being influenced by anyone. He supported human rights; yet he viewed society as a mob of trolls clamoring for conformity. He preached non-conformity; yet he was fiercely disciplined, writing a new play virtually every two years. He was an innovator of drama; yet his dramatic form is wedded to nineteenth-century melodrama.

He agrees to serve as a guinea pig in scientific experimentation for additional pay, his body and mind no more than a cell under a microscope. His duties in the service include shaving officers as well as other menial tasks. Most importantly, Woyzeck is poor and at the disposal of warring heads-of-state, a pawn to the newly conceived notion of modern warfare.
