Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines Hegel’s unique understanding and assessment of capitalism as an economic, social, and cultural phenomenon.

Bringing together scholars from varying perspectives, this book examines the value of Hegel’s thought for understanding and assessing capitalism, both as encountered by Hegel himself and in forms it takes today. The contributors consider Hegel’s complex and multifaceted appraisal of modern market societies, which he understands variously as a condition for a proper account of individual freedom, the framework for a productive account of social interdependency, and the breeding ground for a host of social pathologies concerning individual consumption, labor conditions, and disparities in wealth between the rich and poor. Hegel’s ideas about the topic are situated in the context of work by other important thinkers, including Adam Smith, Immanuel Kant, J. G. Fichte, Karl Marx, Max Weber, and Theodor Adorno, along with contemporary social and economic theorists. Demonstrating the value of Hegel’s philosophy for addressing issues pertaining to capitalism today, the essays bring insight to contemporary concerns such as resurgent neoliberalism, economic globalization, the subordination of ever more spheres of human life to the logic of economic imperatives, and the adequacy of models of utility maximization for comprehending contemporary market societies.

Andrew Buchwalter is Presidential Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Florida. He is the author of Dialectics, Politics, and the Contemporary Value of Hegel’s Practical Philosophy and the editor of Hegel and Global Justice.
