The Hegelian approach is contrasted along two dimensions with a Hobbesian approach, familiar from the work of David Gauthier. Where the Hobbesian requires that all social reasons are ultimately evaluated from an individual standpoint, the Hegelian approach allows social standpoints to play the fundamental evaluative role.

After drawing the contrasts, the author of this paper defends the Hegelian approach against some Hobbesian objections and points to further work that needs to be done in order fully to develop the Hegelian approach.
