Hegel and the double dimension of Liberty: civil and state


  • Fernando Aranda Fraga Universidad Adventista del Plata




Hegel, State, civil society, liberty, ethos


This paper analyzes the Hegel's concepts of civil society and of State, settings in which man —bourgeois and citizen— develops the diverse aspects of his singularity and of his vocation for that which is universal. It tries to go profoundly into the ethical source that includes man's life as an individual and as a citizen, and that, in view of the conditions of the modern world, takes part in the typical life of a subject who has his essential and originary liberty in two spheres which are complementary and at the same time necessary so that he may open up his liberty at its most in activities he comes out in ‘'civil society", and those he carries out as a community subject, endowed with ethical qualities and participating in the political life of the State.
