G.W.F. Hegel on Bourgeois/Citizen - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 47
Bourgeois/citoyen/HegelVsRousseau/Hegel: Hegel offers a solution to the problem of the relationship between politics and economy raised in the role conflict of bourgeois and citoyen, which is more satisfactory from the point of view of property rights protection and with regard to the question of the transformation of bourgeois to citoyen than that of Rousseau.
Liberal property rights are guaranteed publicly in Hegel on the basis of their intrinsic rationality and the Republican identification of the citizen with the political community is guaranteed by institutionally secured processes of "education"(1), in which the citizens gain the ability to look beyond the limits of their private interests and to recognize themselves as parts of a moral whole.
