“The essays are refreshingly free of complex jargon and, taken together, offer a good sampling of recent work in Hegelian moral and political philosophy. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers.” (Choice, 1 October 2012)
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.
