Freedom by Nigel Warburton
Book DescriptionThis introduction to the arguments about individual freedom is ideal for newcomers to philosophy or political thought. Each chapter considers a fundamental argument about the scope of individual freedom, including the concepts of negative and positive freedom, freedom of belief, the Harm Principle, and freedom of speech and expression. Each argument is then clearly linked to a reading from key thinkers on each of these problems: Isaiah Berlin, Jeremy Waldron, Jonathan Wolff, Bernard Williams, Ronald Dworkin, H.L.A. Hart and Charles Taylor. Key features include clear activities and discussion points, chapter summaries, and guides to further reading. ^Freedom will be of interest to students of philosophy, politics and critical thinking.
