More than Recognition: Why Stakeholding Matters for Reconciliation in Hegel's Philosophy of Right Thumbnail


Authors



Abstract

Hegel’s project of reconciliation is central to his Philosophy of Right. This article argues scholars have understood this project in one of two ways, as a form of rational reconciliation or a kind of endorsement. Each is incomplete and their inability to capture the kind of reconciliation Hegel has in mind is made apparent when we consider the kind of problem that the rabble creates for modern society which reconciliation is meant to address. The article concludes that more than mutual recognition is required and we should recognise the crucial role played by stakeholding, whereby citizens share a principled conviction about oneself and other.
