In Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, the necessity of education for men have been mentioned frequently. It is believed by Hegel that education, through which the development from origin to nature would be completed, is the key to freedom of mind by liberate people from his nature state. By looking into statements related to education in Hegel’s Philosophy of Right in perspective of Marxist historical materialism, the study found that even though Hegel has answer the questions of “what education is”, “why to educate” and “how to educate”, he has missed the material basis of mind. Hegel’s ideas on education has shown, in Marx’s words, conservative political opinion and idealism, which becomes the theoretical foundation for ruling class.
