Hegel’s Natural Law Constructivism: Progress in Principle & in Practice

Legend has it that, in principle, Hegel’s Philosophical Outlines of Justice – to render more idiomatically his main title – cannot afford any progress in morals, nor any progressive politics, for either of two reasons: Either his entire moral philosophy is derived a priori from his first principles, ultimately, from his Science of Logic, by inflexible, inexorable dialectical logical deduction; or alternatively: His putative theory of ‘justice’ must simple endorse whatever lurch the Weltgeist takes next in itsmythological self-development through world history, dragging us haplessly in tow. These complaints neglect four related methodological precautions (§2). Following those observations, I consider some substantive fundamentals of Hegel’s moral philosophy, central to his version of what I call ‘Natural Law Constructivism’ (§3). Thus prepared, I detail several specific regards in which Hegel’s normative social morality is progressive both principally and practically (§4), and conclude with some brief reflections on Hegel’s career of public activism on behalf of liberal reform (§5).
