Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right : A Critical Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right : A Critical Guide Paperback / softback

Edited by David James

Part of the Cambridge Critical Guides series


Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right, one of the classic texts of German Idealism, is a seminal work of legal, social and political philosophy that has generated very different interpretations since its publication in 1821.

Written with the advantage of historical distance, the essays in this volume adopt a fresh perspective that makes readers aware of the breadth and depth of this classic work.

The themes of the essays reflect the continuing relevance of the text, and include Hegel's method, the concept of property, Hegel's view of morality, the concept of Sittlichkeit, the modern family, the nature and tensions of civil society, and the question of the modernity of the Hegelian state.

The volume will be of interest to all scholars and students of German Idealism and the history of political thought.
