Freedom and Culture in Western Society
Psychology Press, 1997 - 319 oldal
What does freedom mean? Does everyone in Western liberal democracies enjoy maximum freedom? Has freedom become a dogma, the meaning and justification of which has been forgotten? Critically examining the conceptions of freedom of some of the leading contemporary philosophers from Isaiah Berlin to Charles Taylor, Hans Blokland explores the value and significance that freedom has acquired in our political consciousness. He looks specifically at positive and negative freedom, emancipation and paternalism, and freedom and cultural politics.
