Description - Freedom by Nigel Warburton

This work is an introductory textbook to the arguments about individual freedom. Nigel Warburton introduces and assesses the key arguments for and against individual freedom and toleration. Each chapter considers a fundamental argument about the scope of individual freedom, such as the concepts of negative and positive freedom; freedom of belief; the Harm Principle; and freedom of speech and expression. Each chapter is then clearly linked to a reading from a key thinker on these problems, including John Stuart Mill, Isaiah Berlin, Ronald Dworkin, and H.L.A. Hart. The text helps students to understand and evaluate some of the most important philosophical arguments for individual freedom; link classic philosophical arguments to contemporary issues, such as freedom of speech and expression; and approach philosophical texts with the ability to think clearly and critically. Key features also include activities and discussion points so that readers can monitor their progress throughout the book; and chapter summaries, and guides to further reading. It should be of interest to students of philosophy, politics and critical thinking.
