The Logic of Right

The Logic of Right

(p.222) 11 The Logic of Right
Hegel's Political Philosophy

Richard Dien Winfield

Oxford University Press

Hegel, who pioneers presuppositionless, foundation-free autonomous reason in his Science of Logic and the ethics of self-determination in his Philosophy of Right, might be expected to follow parallel itineraries in both works. Hegel develops logical determinacy into the three successive domains of the contrastive determinacy of the Logic of Being, the determined determinacy of the Logic of Essence, and the self-determined determinacy of the Logic of the Concept. On the other hand, he develops self-determined conduct as a self-ordered system of intersubjective structures of rights, falling into three domains: Abstract Right, Morality, and Ethical Community, dividing Ethical Community itself into the three spheres of family, social, and political ethical community. This chapter examines whether the division of the Philosophy of Right has an intrinsic necessity and completeness and whether that necessity and completeness can be confirmed through any correlation with the categorial division of the Science of Logic.
