Summary
This thesis makes the case for reading G.W.F. Hegel’s Philosophy of Right from 1820 as a pertinent contribution to the public debate on the constitutional question in post-Napoleonic Germany. Its title is inspired by a term used by contemporaries and Hegel himself, repräsentative Verfassung or Repräsentativverfassung. While attempts at precise definition were undertaken, these constituted no more than bids for the prerogative of interpretation, and the exploration of that struggle lies at the heart of this work. At the most basic level, ‘representative constitution’ expresses the demand for some form of popular participation in government. In this sense, it corresponds to ‘representative government’ or ‘representative system’, which is more common and intuitive nowadays, in English as in German (Repräsentativsystem). Yet these expressions leave the concomitant claim unstated - the very need for a constitution, which warranted explicit insistence at a time which saw the first wave of constitutionalisation in Central Europe. Both components of the title-giving term are thus equally important in capturing the single greatest political demand of the age. In the general sense given here, Hegel undoubtedly embraced this demand and, in idiosyncratic fashion, accommodated it in the Philosophy of Right. It is the exploration of Hegel’s characteristic contribution to the discourse on the representative constitution that occupies the following pages
