This other world (of absolute value) can sustain human practical ambitions and hopes but at the cost of the now familiar problem of lack of interaction with the world that human beings inhabit and familiarly experience. Hegel proposes to resolve the problem through a relativizing move: the absolutist perspective is recognized as absolute with respect to the claims (moral, spiritual) it enables us to raise and appropriately redeem. This satisfies the demand, repeatedly asserted in “Positivity,” that moral commands be categorical.

But as we shall see in the “Natural Law” essay, what blocks the path of the naturalization of moral reason is Hegel’s concern that this is a reductivist position, which does not leave any room for freedom. 3. Law: Death and Absolute Sittlichkeit In “Natural Law,” Hegel announces at the outset his ‘scientific’ intentions by framing the essay as the search for a single concept that can explain and also metaphysically ground the relations between reason and nature. 16 This search for the absolute has, however, interesting unexpected outcomes, among them a radical and unflinching Kantian moral metaphysics.
