Distinction of Legal Philosophy and Jurisprudenc: Enlightenment From Legal Philosophy Principle of Hegel

Zhen LI


The problem of relationship between right philosophy and jurisprudence is a chronically debated issue in the academia, and clarifying their relations will not only benefit to define limits between subjects and promote subject research and development, but also can provide knowledge guarantee for the implementation of rule strategy by law. Hegel is the first man who wrote the monograph on right philosophy, and his Legal Philosophy Principle could bring some beneficial enlightenments for the definition of right philosophy and jurisprudence. Through reading up relevant contents of Legal Philosophy Principle, this thesis presents the distinction of right philosophy and jurisprudence from the levels of research object, research level and research method, and provides a brand new angle for distinguishing their relations.
