    Hegel's idea of freedom.Alan Patten - 1999 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    This book offers the first full-length treatment in English of Hegel's idea of freedom - his theory of what it is to be free and his account of the social and political contexts in which this freedom is developed, realized, and sustained. Freedom is the value that Hegel most greatly admired and the central organizing concept of his social philosophy.

    Are The Economic Liberties Basic?Alan Patten - 2014 - Critical Review: A Journal of Politics and Society 26 (3):362-374.
    According to John Tomasi's Free Market Fairness, there are serious constraints on what a liberal state may do to promote economic justice. Tomasi defends this claim by arguing that important economic liberties ought to be regarded as “basic” and given special priority over other liberal concerns, including those of economic justice. I argue that Tomasi's defense of this claim is unsuccessful. One problem takes the form of a dilemma: depending on how the claim is formulated more precisely, Tomasi's argument seems (...)

    Alan Patten | : Equal Recognition seeks to restate the case in favour of liberal multiculturalism in a manner that is responsive to major objections that have been advanced by critics in recent years. The book engages, among other questions, with two central unresolved problems. First, how should ideas of culture and cultural preservation be understood, given widespread suspicion that these ideas rely on an unavowed, but objectionable, form of essentialism? And, second, what exactly is the normative basis of cultural (...)

    Liberal Egalitarianism and the Case for Supporting National Cultures.Alan Patten - 1999 - The Monist 82 (3):387-410.
    Liberal egalitarians agree that the state should protect and promote the freedom of the individual and strive to establish equality of opportunity and resources. They tend to disagree, however, about what these principles entail concerning the state's attitude to the success or failure of the different national cultures which co-exist in many modern political communities. To some it seems obvious that, given the profound importance of culture in shaping a person's identity and outlook, treating people in accordance with liberal egalitarian (...)

  26. A Civic Humanist Idea of Freedom.Alan Patten - 1999 - In Hegel's idea of freedom. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Explores and partially defends Hegel's claim that freedom is most fully realized through membership in the modern state. It contrasts Hegel's ‘civic humanist’ understanding of this claim with the social contract theory's view of the relationship between freedom and the state. The chapter also argues against those commentators who see something sinister in the Hegelian association of freedom with the state. In developing its interpretation, the chapter considers Hegel's distinction between state and civil society and it offers an overview of (...)

  28. Freedom as Rational Self‐Determination.Alan Patten - 1999 - In Hegel's idea of freedom. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Offers an interpretation of the core conception of freedom found in Hegel's social and political philosophy. It argues that to an extent that is sometimes underestimated in the secondary literature Hegel follows Kant in conceptualizing freedom as rational self‐determination. Through a study of Hegel's claim that there is an opposition between freedom and authority, the chapter explains why freedom is associated with rational self‐determination and it considers and responds to various standard objections against understanding freedom in this way.

  29. Hegel and Social Contract Theory.Alan Patten - 1999 - In Hegel's idea of freedom. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Considers how Hegel could both accept the starting point of social contract theory and reject what contractarians take to be an obvious implication of that starting point. It also explores the alternative account of social and political legitimacy that Hegel draws from the principle of freedom. A major theme of the chapter is the importance that Hegel attaches to the ways in which the major institutions of the modern community work to develop and sustain individual free agency. Hegel's main objection (...)

    Hegel’s Alternative to Nationalism.Alan Patten - 2021 - Critical Review: A Journal of Politics and Society 33 (3-4):359-377.
    ABSTRACT All of the major German Idealists perceived a gap between ideals and social reality. Kant sought to bridge this gap through an institutional design that forced self-interest to track the public good. Fichte embraced cultural nationalism, according to which, to overcome the gap between ideals and reality, a nation must revive and strengthen its original culture. Hegel’s solution, in contrast, rests on the idea of ethical habituation. For Hegel, the institutions of a well-designed social order encourage the habits and (...)

  32. Hegel's Justification of Private Property.Alan Patten - 1999 - In Hegel's idea of freedom. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Hegel subscribes to the view that the justification of private property is in some way grounded in the value of individual freedom. The chapter reconstructs Hegel's understanding of, and reasons for holding, this view and partially defends Hegel's position. The interpretation builds critically on a reading of Hegel's view of property developed by Jeremy Waldron. It stresses Fichte's theory of property as essential background to an understanding of Hegel's, and it also emphasizes the role played by recognition in Hegel's view (...)

  33. Introduction: Perspectives on Hegel's Idea of Freedom.Alan Patten - 1999 - In Hegel's idea of freedom. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Introduces the problem of freedom and community in Hegel's thought. Hegel claims that a particular form of community membership is necessary for individual freedom, but this leads to several puzzles. The chapter contrasts and criticizes several standard interpretations of Hegel's theory of freedom and sketches the alternative interpretation to be advanced in the book. It discusses Hegel's views on the connections between freedom, conventionalism, history, and spirit, and it introduces the ‘civic humanist’ aspect of his thought.

    The humanist roots of linguistic nationalism.Alan Patten - 2006 - History of Political Thought 27 (2):221-262.
    The paper argues that modern 'linguistic nationalism' has intellectual roots in Renaissance humanist thought. In their study of classical antiquity, the humanists found a powerful model of the relationship between language and politics, one which had eloquence as its central concept and theorized language as a source of social and political power and as a vehicle for glorifying the deeds of statesmen. This model was originally revived by the humanists in the context of their belief that the Latin language had (...)

    The Idea of Israel as a Jewish State.Alan Patten - 2020 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 21 (2):531-559.
    Israel is often described as a Jewish state and as the locus of Jewish self-determination. How should these phrases be understood? How can they be squared with a commitment to equal citizenship for non-Jewish Israelis? This Article distinguishes between descriptive and normative answers to these questions. The descriptive answer interprets the phrases as referring to the fact that a majority of Israelis are Jewish. The normative answer reads into the phrases a special obligation to promote the common good of the (...)

  37. The Reciprocity Thesis in Kant and Hegel.Alan Patten - 1999 - In Hegel's idea of freedom. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Hegel shares in common with Kant an understanding of freedom as rational self‐determination. For Kant, this view of freedom implies that freedom and morality are reciprocal concepts: if you are free, then you are subject to morality, and vice versa. Although Hegel is famous for dismissing the Kantian formula for freedom/morality as an ‘empty formalism’, he too endorses a version of the reciprocity thesis. The chapter reconstructs and defends Hegel's ‘empty formalism’ critique of Kant and it offers an interpretation of (...)
