Elements of the Philosophy of Right - Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Allen W. Wood, Raymond Geuss

Hegel's most comprehensive examination of ethics and moral philosophy. He counters von Haller's assertion that natural law and the right of the mightiest are sufficient to ground society. Rather than the despotic or  ochlocracist view, Hegel maintains that the rule of law depends on people participating equally (more or less) in moral commitments, property rights, the legal system, and politics without unfairly interfering with each other.
