Hegel's Philosophy of Right is a classic work which is still relevant to contemporary debate in political philosophy. Freedom is the main subject in Hegel's Philosophy of Right. Hegel describes the progress of the human will through three stages to the conscious freedom of man as member of the community. This small book attempts to show that Hegel's Philosophy of Right can be a solution to a contemporary debate on the apparent conflict between rights and duties. Manyeli argues that Hegel's concern to reconcile individual freedom with new forms of the community is germane to his vindication of economic rights. He finds Hegel to be a preferable solution to the antinomies of contemporary thought. Manyeli makes a claim that Hegel is a potential interlocutor in contemporary debates concerning the problem of reconciling rights with duties.
