Synopsis

Most modern philosophers distinguish their work sharply from social science; they deal with logical truths and arguments, not empirical matters. Hegel, however, did not make this distinction; he used his dialectical method to study the structure and dynamics of his own society. In this book, Paul Diesing goes over, step by step, the dialectical method in Hegel's Philosophy of Right. Diesing then shows how the method can be applied to research on our own society. Reseach examples include: family relations; industrial market dynamics (including the auto, steel, computer and airline industries); the development of finance capitalism and the globalizing economy; and, most importantly, political structures and processes. Hegel's Dialectical Political Economy shows how dialectical thinking can help one do research on current society and its problems.
