The first section of this chapter describes the concept of spirit. The whole philosophy of spirit is logically just the final stage in the actualization of the concept of organism. However, the spirit is also a self-contained whole, and this perspective is ultimately more important than the comprehensive standpoint of ‘reality’. Thus, spirit is the reality of the cognitive aspect of total process; and cognition is the comprehending of the real in its universal significance. The second section discusses the concept of volition. The remaining sections examine legal status, the law, the constitution, social classes, the government, and the concept of the Absolute Spirit.

Keywords:   Absolute Spirit, volition, legal status, constitution, social classes, government
