First published in 1999, this is an interesting and significantly valuable example of how Hegel’s Logic can be applied to his own interpretation of his time to produce a contemporary Hegelian view of our world and its problems. The authors show that by the logic of the family, as conceived by Hegal, contemporary views about same sec and single parent families can be justified and defunded. The male-dominance and heterosexual orientation taken for granted by Hegal’s own world is not mandated by the Logic. I find their argument completely convincing. They demonstrate beyond dispute that Hegel’s speculative philosophy remains relevant for us, a very fruitful in its applications.
