"Hegel on Political Identity" draws on Hegel's political philosophy to engage sometimes contentious contemporary issues such as patriotism, national identity, and cosmopolitanism. I argue that patriotism for Hegel indicates an attitude toward the state, whereas national identity is a response to culture. The two combine, Hegel claims, to enable citizens to develop concrete freedom. I claim that Hegel's account of political identity extends to his notorious theory of world history; I also propose that his resistance to cosmopolitanism be reassessed in response to our globalized world. By focusing on Hegel's depiction of political identity as a central part of modern life, I assess the potential of Hegel's philosophy to address issues that lie at the heart of ethical and political philosophy.
