About this title


Philosophy of Right remains among the most influential works in Western political theory. It introduces a notion of civil society that has proven of inestimable importance to diverse philosophical and social agendas. In this transcription of the lectures that formed the initial version of Hegel's text, the philosopher presents his thought with a clarity and directness seldom matched in his later writings. Nowhere does Hegel make clearer the difference between his concept of objective spirit and traditional concepts of natural law. Nowhere does he offer a more prominent treatment of the key notion of recognition. The long-awaited appearance of this first English-language translation of these lectures is a major event for Hegel scholars, philosophers, and political theorists.

From the Inside Flap:

"The advantage of studying Hegel's Philosophy of Right in its initial version is that here Hegel achieves a freshness, simplicity, and directness of expression that is often unmatched by his later expanded, often convoluted published version. For these reasons this text is better suited to beginning students who are receiving their initial exposure to Hegel."—Robert Williams, Hiram College
