Of Human Society

“The earliest societies are simple unified communities.  For example, clan groups and the early stages of ancient Greek society take this form.  With historical development, division and alienation occur and individuality and difference are increasingly manifest.  In Europe, the eventual culmination, according to G. W. F. Hegel, is a modern liberal form of society.  This, he believes, is a higher form of social unity in which individuality and difference are contained within a unified social order.”

-Sean Sayers, Marx and Alienation: Essays on Hegelian Themes, 2011
