Abstract

In this paper I examine Hegel’s metaphilosophy through his views on philosophy’s relation to religion and to ethical life (Sittlichkeit). I consider his formulation of a gateway problem according to which one needs to have some sense for religion in order to become interested in philosophy. I claim that the decisive point for understanding Hegel’s claims about the proximity of philosophy to religion is that reason is essentially evaluative. Once this point is appreciated, the relation of ethical life to both religion and philosophy comes into focus. I argue that ethical issues can also – by Hegel’s own lights – serve the gateway function because there are problems within morality and ethical life that raise philosophical questions for agents themselves. I further argue, somewhat against Hegel’s own self-understanding, that philosophy can take over the role that religion has played in supporting ethical life.
