(p.102) Chapter III The Nature of Finite Spirit
Hegel's Development: Night Thoughts (Jena 1801–1806)

H. S. Harris

Oxford University Press

Hegel's first attempt to write a systematic treatise for use in connection with lectures on ‘natural law’ survived. This is the so-called ‘System of Ethical Life’. It presents a progressive conceptual movement from an undeveloped intuition toward the conceptual whole that is implicit in it. What guides Hegel's whole argument is the positive intuition of the Absolute Idea. The rest of this chapter examines the intuition of life, the institution of property, the experience of liberty, and the Idea of the Community.

Keywords:   ethical life, intuition, property, liberty, community, natural law
