Marx’s critical examination of Hegel’s political philosophy led him to believe that the political state represents not universal but particular interests. Private and special interests do not only find expression in civil society; they actively seek representation through “organs of the state” in the political state (Teeple, 1984: 46). The hold of power by material interest in the political state, Marx concludes, makes the political state not unify but stand against civil society. ” First of all, Marx takes issue with the self-contradictory nature of the state in Hegel’s own statements.

Instead, “Hegel sees the Korporation as representing the interests of a particular industry in general” (Cullen, 1979: 92). Therefore, Hegel’s corporation, which is formed in the service of particular interests, is tantamount to the network of associations that are considered so crucial for today’s democracy in contemporary political theories. Corporations include not only economic organizations, or “trade guilds” as Hegel called them, but also such noneconomic associations such as religious bodies, learned societies, and sometimes town councils (PR, §270 and §288).

Hegel’s use of the term “police” is much broader than merely the maintenance of public order or the enforcement of law as now understood. It involves a host of activities initiated by the government to intervene in the market and to regulate and control civil society. , Hardimon, 1994: 195; Westphal, 1992: 43). In addition to crime prevention and control, Hegel’s police are also responsible for a wide range of public services that are performed by public institutions today: “the provision and operation of public utilities and works … the regulation of the market … consumer protection, public health, public education, welfare, and prevention of unemployment” (Hardimon, 1992: 195).
