Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the reception of G. W. F. Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right. It then provides the systematic reading of Hegel's work, and addresses the question of why the non-systematic approach is often a non-metaphysical one. Finally, the chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to provide a modest systematic reading of the Philosophy of Right (which we might call a weak systematic reading) that demonstrates the necessity of the systematic account.
