This important new study offers a powerful exposition of the ethical theory underlying Hegel's philosophy of society, politics, and history. Professor Woodshows how Hegel applies his theory to such topics as human rights, the justification of legal punishment, criteria of moral responsibility, and the authority of individual conscience. The book includes a critical discussion of Hegel's treatment of other moral philosophers (especially Kant, Fichte and Fries), provides an account of the controversial concept of 'ethical life', and shows the relation between the theory and Hegel's critical assessment of modern social institutions. The book is nontechnical and should interest anyone concerned with Hegel's ethical and political thought, including philosophers, political scientists, intellectual historians and students of German culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an excellent treatment of a subject which has never been adequately dealt with in English ... His book will be the most important study of Hegelian ethics since Bradley's Ethical Studies.' H. S. Harris, York University
"This is an excellent treatment of a subject which has never been adequately dealt with in English...His book will be the most important study of Hegelian ethics since Bradley's Ethical Studies." H.S. Harris, York University
"Wood's book is outstanding and will help to move Hegel to the centre of current discussion in ethical and political theory." Michael Inwood, Times Literary Supplement
"Access to Hegel's thought is rarely easy. W. deserves high praise for leading the reader along paths that make it possible to locate key Hegelian concepts in relation both to the context in which Hegel proposed them and to a set of issues that, as much as in Hegel's day, still engender lively debate." Philip J. Rossi, Theological Studies
