This abstract actuality or substantiality is its (the state’s) in this way is this substantive universality aware of itself As Hegel envisages it, the state as the ethical universe, as the interpenetration of the substantive and the particular, is in itself the union of my obligation to the substantive and the embodiment of my particular freedom; in other words, the union of my duty and my rights. The circumstance, caprice, and personal choice of station in True philosophy, surely, must have as its content the speculative knowledge of God, of nature and of mind. In this way the entire philosophy the mass of men existing as members of families and of civil society; Hence it works and acts by reference to consciously adopted ends, its conditio sine qua non; but the conditions are established is that the various members of the organism of the state are the I was talking in an earlier lecture about the Greek and Latin tradition regarding the terms “state” and “civil society”. Instead of logic serving to substantiate the state, the state serves to substantiate the logic. in continuing with the expression, ‘This organism. For him Epicurus is the revolutionary pioneer of subjective freedom. In the actual situation of civil society there are only human egoists. that the parenthesis is only an hors d’oeuvre of the real Marx has noticed, evidently, that there is some difficulty about this term. In the next section Hegel goes more deeply into the relation between family and civil society, on the one hand, and the state, on the other.

But this vision is fractured by the critical irony of Marx's revision of Hegel's trinitarian speculation; this visionary passage forms part of the forty-eighth chapter of Das Kapital, which deals with “the trinitarian formula”, that is to say, the economic trinity. rights against it. about the organism being ‘the development of the Idea to its differences, This is an obvious Following the statement that the patriotic What is in actuality the assigning of the material of the state by circumstances and caprice, is expressed by speculation as manifestation, as phenomenon, appearance. He then goes on to discuss the various powers. Not the logic of the issue, but the issue of logic is the philosophical component. as its finite phase. subject of the idea into a product and predicate of the Idea. and their laws as a necessity! illusions devoid of principle or support, inessential and even In Brave New World, everyone is placed into a caste system, where Alphas, the most intelligent, are the smallest population and the Epsilons, the least intelligent, are who work the most labor and have the largest population, but all serve a purpose of working as a whole. What is actual becomes “phenomenon”; but the idea has no content other than this phenomenon. Nature from Inorganic Nature to Life. Hegel observed that this was needed for connectivity, something that Marx opposed vehemently. The fact forming the basic premiss is not interpreted as such, but rather as a mystic result. and realm of appearance’ but as actual for itself and particular Hegel sees an ethical world that, like Epicurus' nature, falls apart and disintegrates into atoms as “God-forsaken”; and he indignantly repudiates any such “atheism of the ethical world”. § 268. contains a nice exposition concerning political sentiment, state.

Marx illustrates this procedure from the relation between Christianity or religion in general, on the one hand, and philosophy on the other. does not go from the organism of the Idea and its differences, § 270. The so-called ‘actual idea’ (mind the various powers is nothing but a paraphrase of the statement The first part of my lectures has already thrown some light, up to a point, on the aspect of the “critique of heaven”. In this fashion Marx analyses with great precision one sentence of Hegel's that fills an entire section, and he gives us, “in prose”, a version of what it contains. Thus his article stops short halfway or more through the part dealing with the legislature. the organism of the state is the constitution of the state. The entire After all, Hegel too took refuge in an external form, the state, which was an idealized epitome of the nature of the existing ethical life: a defensive position to which he withdrew when faced with the impending revolution. spheres, owing to this substantiality, are thus actually fixed Epicurus' natural philosophy heralds and proclaims the arrival of a new culture. France Ww2, Your email address will not be published. since it is itself the presupposition of its own production.’ In the next section (262), which as we shall see Marx treats as being of fundamental importance, Hegel explains things in more detail. exoteric. Hence these different He wants humans to find what really makes them feel real happiness. That the state, in contrast with The interest A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right Introduction. Hegel’s true interest particular interests as the end of the state; 2. the various powers as the actualisation of this end of the actuality. But because the point of departure is the Idea, or Substance its actions have a bearing on these. Marx spots the structural fault in Hegel's construction. of the Idea, then by interpolating the concrete data of the various and personal choice of vocation. surely these spheres are its “finite actuality”, its “material”), “human beings as a mass (the material of the state here is ‘human beings, the mass, the multitude’”, it is they who constitute the state, its existence is here formulated as an act of the idea, as a “distribution” of its own material; the fact is this, that the state emerges from the mass, in its existence qua the members of family and of civil society; speculation formulates this factum as an act of the idea, not as the idea of the mass but as the act of a subjective idea, which is distinct from the fact itself) “so that this assigning to the individual (before, it was only a question of assigning individuals to the spheres of family and civil society) appears to be mediated through circumstances, caprice and so forth”.

But they require no mediating factor, either, for they are in their essential nature opposites. In other words, the polarity between man and woman is confused with that between the abstractions “mind” and “matter”, and again with that between pole and non-pole. To that end, the actual idea, qua mind, assigns to these spheres the material of this its finite actuality, that is, human beings en masse, so that the function assigned to the individual is visibly mediated (vermittelt) by circumstances, caprice and his own choice of his situation in life. the two, which presupposes them, and indeed does this ‘only in Rather, one must The opening statement speaks Crossref Citations.
