Hegel’s Doctrine on Society and History

Society is not the aggregate of existing individuals, as the individualists claim. The existing individuals are the inheritors of the society which has been created by the struggles and aspirations, achievements and failures of the past generations. In his philosophy Hegel notes that history of philosophy is at the core of the moral and political values of a nation, and that the critique of moral and political theories goes hand in hand with the political and economic struggle to transform society. Our way of life is determined by not only the moral and political values but also the historical baggage that we have inherited from the past.
