Chapter Summary

This chapter develops the thesis that Hegel, in his Philosophy of Right, has not adequately comprehended the notion of modern freedom. The development of so-called multicultural societies in particular makes clear that corporations should not be understood one-sidedly as institutions of the labor domain. However, the question can be raised as to which meaningful concretization applies with regard to the second family. The author proposes that the contemporary multicultural society offers the basis of experience which enables us to recognize the level upon which the alternative educational processes must take place. It is easy to identify the culture community with the religious community. The culture community not only presupposes the religious conscience, but Hegels concept of religion corresponds to the determination of the culture community as a community of norms and values, in which general freedom and equality are more specifically articulated.

Keywords: education; Hegel; modern freedom; multicultural society; Philosophy of Right; religious community
