Hegel's Laws
Stanford University Press

This concluding chapter raises the following questions that draw from Hegel's philosophy of the legitimacy of a modern legal order: Does Hegel's legal philosophy escape from legal formalism? Is the legal order legitimate independent of the arbitrary will? It then questions whether Hegel's legal philosophy is so presuppositionless as he claims for it. Finally, it discusses the paradox of Hegel's legal philosophy.
