Hegel (1770-1831) were his ethics, his theory of the state, & his philosophy of history. The Philosophy of Right (Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts, 1821), the last work published in Hegels lifetime, is a combined system of moral & political philosophy, or a sociology dominated by the idea of the state. Here Hegel repudiates his earlier assessment of the French Revolution as a a marvelous sunrise in the realization of liberty. Rejecting the republican form of government, he espouses an idealized form of a constitutional monarchy, whose ultimate power rests with the sovereign.
