Law in Civil Society

The Owl of Minerva 28 (1):122-128 (1996)

It is hard to imagine a revival of Schelling’s philosophy of medicine. But in the past decade, there have been seventy-five articles in American law reviews about Hegel’s philosophy of law. A comparable number of academic articles and books have also appeared. Richard Dien Winfield, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Georgia, ranks among the most ambitious and comprehensive scholars to apply Hegel to law. His latest book, Law in Civil Society, is a welcome companion to his other Hegelian studies of justice and law. He himself sees the book as the completion of his systematic treatment of civil society, begun in The Just Economy, but its concerns are, perhaps, still more closely related to his Reason and Justice and Freedom and Modernity.
