Chapter Summary

Hegel's innovative theory of personality testifies to the continuing and enduring modernity of his conception of Objective Spirit as a philosophy of the practical. The cornerstone of the entire building of this philosophy of freedom is erected in this chapter. An array of problematics contained therein ranges from the concept of the person, personality and interpersonality, fundamental rights [Grundrechte], property, the formation of the natural as self-formation and formation of external nature, sustainability, appropriation, intellectual property to contract, wrong [Unrecht], 'second coercion' [zweiten Zwang] and punishment. The chapter discusses the problematic of wrong and Hegel's concept of 'second coercion'. Hegel refers in this context to the judgment-structure: "crime may be viewed as an objective instance of the negatively infinite judgment'.

Keywords: Hegel; Hegel's innovative theory of personality; modernity; philosophy
