Papers are welcome on the theme of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. The idea behind the conference is to be wide-ranging and to consider the continuing importance for Hegel’s legal, moral, social and political philosophy for philosophy itself, for other disciplines and indeed for contemporary life more broadly. We are interested in papers on any aspect of Hegel’s philosophy of right and / or its influence, papers that compare Hegel with other thinkers, and papers that expose modernity to Hegel’s critical eye (or, indeed, that expose Hegel’s thought to the critical eye of modernity).
