Classical Political Economy through the Sieve of Dialectic Reason: the Hegelian Rereading

Delphine Brochard ()

Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in Political Economy, 2002, issue 43, 7-30

Abstract: This article examines Hegel's analysis of the economic system in his mature philosophical work, the Philosophy of Right. It argues that this analysis is not grounded on the adoption and development of classic economic theses but on their dialectic reinterpretation. This particular logic of comprehension found the singularity of Hegel's view of the economic sphere and it's irreducibility to classical theses. The article explains how this logic leads the philosopher to underscore the inadequacies of market coordination and its necessary transcendence in the rational state. Then the article displays the originality of Hegel's articulation of civil society and state, like a mid line between planning and liberalism.
