It is well known that Hegel was not particularly favorable to democracy. But an examination of his reasons for so objecting is fruitful. It reveals in particular the difficulty of combining democracy and the principles of liberalism. Hegel's critique of the irrelevance of democracy is also instructive for an actual critical theory of democracy.
