<p class="x_MsoNormal"><b>Abstract: </b>In this paper, I will set out a holistic reading of Hegel’s concept of ‘concrete freedom’. By freedom in concreto Hegel means, neither the absence of undue external interference as a necessary precondition of individual
 free choice (Hobbes; Section 1) nor rational self-determination made possible through the strict adherence to the moral law and its putative universally valid normative criteria (Kant; 2), but rather a relational achievement obtaining between self and other
 wherein the former is genuinely reconciled with the latter, or in Hegel’s terms ‘with itself’ or ‘at home’ in it (3). On my holistic reading of Hegel, our relation to those others upon which we are necessarily dependent applies in a highly differentiated manner
 to: (i) one’s psycho-physiology or internal nature; (ii) external nature; (iii) other subjects; and (iv) social reality and in particular the norms, customs and institutions of which it is comprised (4). Such an approach arguably encompasses all of the dimensions—namely,
 the ‘subjective’, ‘natural’, ‘intersubjective’ and ‘social’—required for a complete picture of concrete human freedom.</p>
