The Oxford Handbook of Freedom


Carmen E Pavel and David Schmidtz

"We speak of being 'free' to speak our minds, free to go to college, free to move about; we can be cancer-free, debt-free, worry-free, or free from doubt. The concept of freedom has been subject to searching if not withering scrutiny. The Oxford Handbook of Freedom is a wide-ranging analysis of freedom in all its dimensions: legal, cultural, religious, economic, political, and psychological. Reflecting the scope of the topic, this volume includes 28 essays by historians and political theorists as well as philosophers.
