Lucio Cortella is Full Professor of History of Philosophy at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice in Italy.

Giacomo Donis is a professional translator.

Review:

[The book s] heart is an intelligent, sympathetic analysis of the first two sections of Hegel s Philosophy of Right. CHOICE
That democracy is the best form of government has, since Hegel s time, become an almost unquestioned assumption in political philosophy. Hegel s opposition to direct democracy seems then to put him squarely on the wrong side of history, forcing sympathetic interpreters either to defend or discount this unfortunate choice. Lucio Cortella s book is a welcome addition to this debate. Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews"

Book Description State University of New York Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Translation. Language: English . Brand New Book. The legal regulations and formal rules of democracy alone are not enough to hold a society together and govern its processes. Yet the irreducible ethical pluralism that characterizes contemporary society seems to make it impossible to impose a single system of values as a source of social cohesion and identity reference. In this book, Lucio Cortella argues that Hegel s theory of ethical life can provide such a grounding and makes the case through an analysis of Hegel s central political work, the Philosophy of Right. Although Hegel did not support democratic political ends and wrote in a historical and cultural context far removed from the current liberal-democratic scene, Cortella maintains that the Hegelian theory of ethical life, with its emphasis on securing a framework conducive to human freedom, nevertheless offers a convincing response to the problem of the ethical uprootedness of contemporary democracy.
