[OPE-L] Hegel's _Philosophy of Right_ and Marx

See message below on London Marx-Hegel Reading Group.  The
group is looking at "Hegel's Doctrine of the State in Marx."  The
emphasis it seems is on examining the relation of Hegel's _Philosophy
of Right_ to Marx's _early_ writings.  Why, though, haven't they taken
the next step and asked what is the relation of the structure of the
_Philosophy of Right_ to the proposed structure of the 6-book-plan,
I wonder?

Felton C. Shorthall pointed out the following (_The Incomplete Marx_,
Aldershot, Avebury, 1994, p. 468) similarity:


*Philosophy of Right*      *Marx's Original Plan of Work*

A) The Family


B)  Civil Society                    Book on Capital
                                             Book on Landed Property
                                             Book on Wage-Labour


C)  The State                        The State

International Law                   International Trade

World History                       World Market and Crisis


Is this just a coincidence?

In solidarity, Jerry
