Hegel between non-domination and expressive freedom: Capabilities, perspectives, democracy

Philosophy and Social Criticism 32 (4):493-512 (2006)
Hegel may be read as endorsing a republican conception of freedom as non-domination. This may then be allied to an expressive conception of freedom not as communal integration and non-alienation, but rather as the development of new powers and capabilities. To this extent, he may be understood as occupying a position between nondomination and expressive freedom. This not only informs contemporary discussions of republicanism and democracy, but also suggests a ‘capabilities solution’ to the otherwise intractable problem of the rabble. Key Words: creativity • democracy • domination • expression • freedom • G.W.F.Hegel • rabble • republicanism.
