Hegel, law, philosophy, purpose, responsibility


We have carefully walked through the psychological, social and historical aspects of responsibility in Hegel's texts. We have seen that attention to the concept of responsibility reveals the true nature of Hegel's controversial claims about the inherent social nature of human action. Most discussions of Hegel's theory of action concern the interrelation of objects, objects, and objects with the entire external environment, to assign responsibility for it to changes that occur as a result of action - where My actions and responsibilities begin and end? Accordingly, Hegel believes that we are objectively responsible for complying with the standards set forth in these three areas of rights; We are responsible not only for moral violations but also for violations of abstract rights and for failure to live up to the duties of our moral station. The relevant sense of objective responsibility covers openness to evaluation in all three respects (responsibility is openness to normative—legitimate and moral—evaluation in light of ends Which the actor cannot reject. (The idea of responsibility is an idea expressing freedom as being with oneself. Responsibility does not depend on causal ability but on cognitive ability, that is, that one has a certain type of knowledge of one’s own activity, that the actor has a self-perception Defined as fundamentally free, its realization depends on the individual being considered a “responsible agent,” an absolute responsibility which requires that the individual be a member of an actually existing entity, a certain state. That achieving the self-conception of oneself as free—that is, possessing a rational will—is a condition Necessary for responsibility.
