Hegel's Vocabulary

Hegel's Vocabulary

(p.27) Chapter One Hegel's Vocabulary
Hegel's Laws
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses Hegel's vocabulary. Hegel writes in the historical context of two deep intellectual traditions, each with its own vocabulary that he takes for granted. His vocabulary also draws upon an extraordinary breadth of Western literature, Greek and Roman history, Roman law, and incisive and thought-provoking metaphors. Perhaps the most important, yet unfamiliar, term in professional legal education today is Bildung. The discussions cover Hegel's use of the following terms: freedom; self-consciousness; spirit; universals, individuals, and particulars; Roman law; the person vs. the subject; actuality; the Concept; and the living Good.

Keywords:   Bildung, legal philosophy, self-consciousness, spirit, freedom, universals, individuals, particulars, Roman law, Hegel
