From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sittlichkeit refers to the concept of "ethical life" furthered by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel in the Elements of the Philosophy of Right. It is the third sphere of 'right' that he establishes, and is marked by family life, civil society, and the state. It attempts to bridge individual subjective feelings and the general right.

  1. In family, the individual finds its first place, as part of a group via love. Within this system there is an emphasis on marriage and education. Although Hegel endorses a semi-traditional role of men in this society, he otherwise supported equality of the sexes.
