Hegel’s teaching on the objective spirit, as a moment of the world spirit, is an idea based on objective morality, while modern state is the highest historical manifestation of that morality. The objective spirit understood in this way is juxtaposed by the subjective morality in the form of the contingency of instincts and concepts of individual subjects: these two elements make for the specific constitution of modern state. For a state to exist as the realisation of freedom and to fulfil its world-historical task, it is necessary to eliminate and overcome the opposition of these two elements. That is why in Hegel’s “ideal” concept of the structure of the state (which for him means communal life in freedom), the state-community is defined as a unity of free individuals-citizens, permeated with the idea of the good.
