In the most political work of a man who influenced a generation of French intellectuals and scholars, Alexandre Kojeve gives a systematic discussion of the themes of right and law and his case for the character of the justice of equity. In addition, Kojeve accounts for the origins and development of right and justice from the master-slave dialectic, through which he shows that law is an autonomous and conceptually unified phenomenon.
