Overview

This study explores the theme of freedom in the philosophy of Hegel and Nietzsche. First, Will Dudley sets Hegel's Philosophy of Right within a larger systematic account and deploys the Logic to interpret it. He demonstrates that freedom involves not only the establishment of certain social and political institutions but also the practice of philosophy itself. Then, he reveals how Nietzsche's discussions of decadence, nobility and tragedy lead to an analysis of freedom that critiques heteronomous choice and Kantian autonomy, and ultimately issues a positive conception of liberation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a promising contribution to Nietzsche scholarship..." Inquiry
Booknews
Both philosophers adopted Kant's notion that freedom depends on a further kind of freedom for which it is unable to account, and that people's actions are truly free only if their choices are determined by a free will, Dudley (philosophy, Williams College) argues, but they then diverged to contend that willing can be truly free only in virtue of an activity other than itself, and that self-determination of the will rests on another kind of freedom without which willing fails to be genuinely self-determining.
