La « Sittlichkeit » et les Principes de la philosophie du droit de Hegel

Abstract : Hegel is not an ordinarily obvious resource in moral philosophy. At most, we generally retain his critical posture with regard to the moral perspective, notably through the condemnation of the "beautiful soul". However, Hegelian thought gives a notable position to moral reflection. This reflection is developed in the Elements of the Philosophy of Right. The concept of Ethical life (Sittlichkeit) is the core of Hegelian ethical theory. This concept brings together the two sides of Kantian practical philosophy, namely legality (Doctrine of Right) and morality (Doctrine of Virtue). Irreducible to both, this profoundly amphibological concept therefore refers to a reality that cannot be the subject of unambiguous interpretation. This reality is unfolded through three stages: family, society and the state. Finally, Hegel demonstrates that this reality fulfills the ethical needs of the conscience.
