Flap copy

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's Philosophy of Right is widely acknowledged as one of the most important texts in the history of moral and political philosophy. While exerting a profound influence on several major philosophical movements, the groundbreaking 1820 work continues to shape philosophical thought. Hegel's Philosophy of Right presents a collection of new essays by leading international philosophers and Hegel scholars who analyze and explore Hegel's key contributions in the areas of ethics, politics, and law.

Contributions address issues that include ethics, the relationship of Hegelian ethics with contemporary debates in value theory, the so-called empty formalism objection that Hegel directs at Immanuel Kant's moral philosophy, Hegel's understanding of law, justice, and political issues that shed new light on Hegel's ideas of punishment, ethical life, and family. Scholarly and thought-provoking, Hegel's Philosophy of Right offers important new insights into our understanding of Hegel's seminal Philosophy of Right and the broader world of Hegelian philosophy.
