Patten succeeds in the important task of convincing his readers that Hegel's social and political thought continues to deserve our attention today (Frederick Neuhouser, Times Literary Supplement)
Patten does an exemplary job of reconstructing the philosophical positions that underlie Hegel's social and political theories, and his book contributes importantly to our ability to bring the resources of Hegel's thought to bear on the problems of contemporary social philosophy (Frederick Neuhouser, Times Literary Supplement)
The distinctive contribution of Patten's book is its thorough and incisive reconstruction of the argument that underlies the principal thesis of Hegel's social philosophy (Frederick Neuhouser, Times Literary Supplement)
offers its readers a clear and penetrating analysis of the complex conception of freedom that underlies Hegel's vision of the rational, or good, social order. In providing a reconstruction of Hegel's view that is unfailingly direct and jargon-free, Patten brings us to see the plausibility and attractiveness of a social philosophy that has often seemed both obscure and pernicious to Anglo-American critics (Frederick Neuhouser, Times Literary Supplement 01/05/2002)
Freedom is the value that Hegel most greatly admired and the central organizing concept of his social philosophy. Alan Patten offers the first full-length treatment in English of Hegel's idea of freedom - his theory of what it is to be free and his account of the social and political contexts in which this freedom is developed, realized, and sustained.
Patten's investigation illuminates and resolves a number of central questions concerning Hegel's ethics and political theory. Is Hegel's outlook unacceptably conservative? Can freedom be equated with rational self-determination? Is there any special connection between freedom and citizenship? By offering interpretations of Hegels views on these and other questions, Patten develops an original 'civic humanist' reading of Hegel's social philosophy that restores to its proper, central place Hegel's idea of freedom.
The book is written in a clear and jargon-free style and will be of interest to anyone concerned with Hegel's ethical, social, and political thought and the sources of contemporary ideas about freedom, community, and the state.
