For it is only the coherent effect of the latter that procures the required and habitual forms of conduct that one trustingly and “confidently” grows into and adopts. Philosophy, on the other hand, requires us to relinquish everything merely habitual in principle (BA, in GW XVIII, 30). ” The latter cannot even provide that probity or uprightness of ethical character that Hegel understands13 as the “simple conformity of the individual to the duties set by the relationships in which he finds himself placed” (Rph §150).

And philosophy also presents itself expressly as a duty precisely for those who perceive its character as a right (Rph §155). The content of this right is fundamentally the same as that of the right to practice religion, with which indeed philosophy shares the same end and substantive content (BA, in GW XVIII, 25). Both rights rest on the fact that the general liberation of the world from the purely instrumental context of the will and the recognition of secular reason that is accomplished through the intrinsically free intelligence itself grounds a right to the (philosophical or religious) existence of this very accomplishment.
