Publisher's Summary

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's Philosophy of Right is widely acknowledged as one of the most important texts in the history of moral and political philosophy. While exerting a profound influence on several major philosophical movements, the groundbreaking 1820 work continues to shape philosophical thought. Hegel's Philosophy of Right presents a collection of new essays by leading international philosophers and Hegel scholars who analyse and explore Hegel's key contributions in the areas of ethics, politics, and law.
Contributions address issues that include ethics, the relationship of Hegelian ethics with contemporary debates in value theory, the so-called "empty formalism" objection that Hegel directs at Immanuel Kant's moral philosophy, Hegel's understanding of law, justice, and political issues that shed new light on Hegel's ideas of punishment, ethical life, and family. Scholarly and thought-provoking, Hegel's Philosophy of Right offers important new insights into our understanding of Hegel's seminal Philosophy of Right and the broader world of Hegelian philosophy.
Thom Brooks is Reader in Political and Legal Philosophy at Newcastle University. He is editor and founder of the Journal of Moral Philosophy . His books include Hegel's Political Philosophy: A Systematic Reading of the Philosophy of Right (2007).

Critic Reviews

“This is a fine collection of highly engaging and accessible scholarly essays on Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. The essays focus on ethics, politics, and law and highlight with great originality the significance of Hegel’s thought for contemporary debates concerning value theory, Kantian formalism, punishment theory, political organisation, gender equality, standards of justice, and legal authority. Students and scholars will learn much from this thought–provoking and very welcome volume.” (Stephen Houlgate, University of Warwick)

This is not an actual reading of Hegal

What would have made Hegel's Philosophy of Right better?

It would be good if it was actually what i wanted to buy. Not an audio critical essay of the book.

Not the actual book!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a critical analysis of the book, not Hegel's work.

Any additional comments?

This is NOT Hegel's Philosophy of Right!! Its an analysis of his work. It likely could have been a good book, but it is not as the title suggests.

Excellent, though not a light read!

Really enjoyed this but takes some concentration. Not one to listen to while you're trying to do anything else!
