Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. This book has argued for a systematic reading of Hegel's Philosophy of Right. This reading is both consistent with Hegel's own self-understanding of his project and offers a more robust interpretation of the Philosophy of Right, providing a clear advance on existing studies of this text. A principal target throughout has been Allen Wood's influential non-systematic reading of the Philosophy of Right in his Hegel's Ethical Thought. Throughout, a philosophical defence of Hegel's positions has been avoided. Instead, the focus has been to make explicit a more robust understanding of Hegel's positions on important topics in his political and legal philosophy.
