Coordinator: John Grumley

Description

This unit will focus on Hegel's mature social and political ideas as present in Elements of a Philosophy of Rights. Hegel offers one of the great alternative conceptualisations of modern politics and state to the dominant classical liberal tradition This course will contextualise his ideas in terms of both their own development and of Hegel's philosophy as a whole. However, the emphasis will be on a careful reconstruction of Hegel's mature political philosophy and his critique of his most important competitors both then and now.
