About this title


This book argues that the criterion of rationality Hegel employs in his argument that the modern state as he conceptualizes it is rational is the holistic inferential system of concepts he refers to as the Concept and depicts in the Science of Logic. The book then attempts to explain Hegel’s political philosophy as it is articulated in the Philosophy of Right in terms of the logical and metaphysical requirements of the Science of Logic. This unified logical interpretation of Hegel’s philosophy is opposed not only to recent “practical” interpretations which dispense entirely with his Science of Logic, but also to recent transcendental interpretations which attribute to Hegel the position that the determining activity of thought is limited to the form of the object of its cognition. The result of the interpretive argument offered in this book is a unified philosophy of logic and politics, in which the content of the objective political world is conceptual all the way down. Furthermore, it is argued that the interpretation of the relation between Hegel’s logic and political philosophy offered in this book implies a closer proximity between Hegel’s political philosophy and Marx’s critique of political economy than is generally recognized in the contemporary scholarship.
