HEGELOVA KONCEPCIA BYROKRACIE AKO VŠEOBECNÉHO STAVU
Hegel’s conception of bureaucracy as a universal class
Languages of publication
This article analyses Hegel’s conception of bureaucracy in Philosophy of Right, especially in relation to its characteristic as a universal class. It is argued that’s function of bureaucracy as a universal class transcends its particular practical function and it has emancipatory function as well. This view is then briefly criticized via the criticism raised by young Marx. Finally, it is argued that philosophical validity of Hegel’s conception is intentionally and inherently linked to, in principle, contingent historical development. This is then related to current bureaucratic apparatus of European Union.
