These two elements - actual conscience and mutual recognition - link up with a third, that of a recognized institutional order.

Within the modern institutional order comprising the family, civil society, and the state, Hegel thinks, according to Moyar, that individuals are able link their aims and purposes to the universal aims and purposes promoted by the these institutions. In this way individuals can act according to their conscience, choosing those things that they have good reason to choice, without either denying themselves, which would mean living an alienated existence, or ignoring the absence of recognition from others, which would mean being an unsatisfied master.
Instead, insofar as they are part of well ordered state, and recognize this fact, individuals can achieve satisfaction in their actions while supporting the universal aims of the institutional order. Thus according to Moyar, conscience is at the center of Hegel's ethics insofar as mutually recognized agents aim to relate their aims and purposes to those of the universal institutional order by acting according to their conscience while seeking recognition from others, primarily for their actions, and, on occasion, for their authority as agent's capable of acting according to conscience.
There is much else that is of interest in the book. Needless to say, moral and political philosophers, business ethicists, and Hegel scholars will find much to appreciate here. First, Moyar ignores the question of Hegel's ontology and a more explicit discussion of this would help to clarify the nature of the universal that is presupposed by Hegel's account. Second, some discussion of the sociological implications of this Hegelian view would be helpful. In other words, is it plausible to assume that individual aims and the aims of the institutional order are sufficiently harmonious?
Of course, discussing these issues would have probably doubled the length of the book but hopefully future work will take up these questions.
