Summary
"This book is unique among contemporary approaches - although it is true to the spirit of classical writers like Hobbes and Kant - in seeking a theory that applies to psychological issues of free agency and free will as well as to political issues in the theory of the free state and the free constitution. The driving thesis is that it is only by connecting up the different issues of freedom, psychological and political, that we can fully appreciate the nature of the questions involved, and the requirements for their resolution. The book does not seek a comprehensive reach just for its own sake, but rather for the sake of the illumination it provides." "A Theory of Freedom is a volume which will be of interest to scholars and students in philosophy, jurisprudence and political theory."--Jacket
