MIZRAHI, Esteban. Sovereignty and War in Hegel's Philosophy of Right. Rev. humanid. Valpso. [online]. 2021, n.18, pp.79-99.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0719-4234.

This paper attempts to clarify the conceptual foundations of sovereignty in Hegel's Philosophy of Law in order to provide an answer to this question and thus be able to evaluate the scope of contemporary sovereignty and the adequacy of its claims. As will be seen, Hegel constructs his own position in critical dialogue with Hobbes' and Kant's approaches, with more or less explicit references. The development of this article is divided into three parts. In the first, (a) the Hegelian conception of sovereignty is presented in the framework of his organicist understanding of the state, taking into account both its internal and external aspects. The second, (b) analyses Hegel's theoretical foundations of war and his position in international relations. Finally, (c) the scope of sovereignty today is discussed in the light of Hegelian thought.
