    Hegel on the Value of the Market Economy.Thimo Heisenberg - 2018 - European Journal of Philosophy 26 (4):1283-1296.
    It is widely known that Hegel is a proponent and defender of the market economy. But why exactly does Hegel think that the market economy is superior to other economic systems? In this paper, I argue that Hegel's answer to this question has not been sufficiently understood. Commentators, or so I want to claim, have only identified one part of Hegel's argument—but have left out the most original and surprising dimension of his view: namely, Hegel's conviction that we should embrace (...)

    Hegel and the Problem of Affluence.Thimo Heisenberg - 2022 - Journal of the American Philosophical Association 8 (2):224-237.

By bringing this discussion (...)

  4. Die moralische Wende in Kants Philosophie der Geschichte.Thimo Heisenberg - 2018 - Philosophisches Jahrbuch 1 (125):2-19.
    In this paper, I argue that Kant’s philosophy of history underwent a significant change between his 1784 Idea for a Universal History and his 1790 Third Critique. My proposal is that in between these two texts Kant decisively revised his conception of the sources of historical, i. e. cultural and political, progress: In 1784, he conceived of historical progress as primarily accomplished through social antagonism among human beings, whereas beginning in 1790, he elevates ethical cooperation into a second, significant source (...)
