"Those of us who work in moral and political philosophy owe a great debt of gratitude to the editors for taking such care in assembling this wonderful anthology. This is easily the best, most exhaustive collection on Freedom with which I am familiar." Christopher Wellman, Washington University in St Louis
"Among the main themes of this superb collection is that freedom has many dimensions, and among the many conditions of securing it is a willingness not to exaggerate the importance of securing everything. Every college should teach a course on freedom and its prerequisites, and Freedom: An Anthology would serve admirably as a primary reference text." David Schmidtz, University of Arizona
The most complete anthology on the philosophy of freedom ever compiled, this volume is a broad guide to the vast philosophical literature on the topic of social, political, and economic freedom. The Editors, themselves important contributors to the relevant debates, focus Freedom: A Philosophical Anthology on work completed over the last several decades, but include foundational writings from historically significant philosophers such as Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Marx, Hegel, Bentham, Montesquieu, and Kant. Topics include negative and positive freedom; government and arbitrary power; freedom and the mind; freedom and morality; coercion; autonomy; freedom, ability and economic inequality; and the value and measure of freedom. Covering a wide diversity of political points of view, the range and quality of writings in this anthology make it an ideal and versatile course text.
