Abstract:

"Morality of Freedom" is the winner of the W J M Mackenzie Prize of the Political Studies Association for 1987.

Ranging over central issues of morals and politics, this book discusses the nature of freedom and authority. It examines the role of value-neutrality, rights, equality, and the prevention of harm in the liberal tradition, and relates them to fundamental moral questions such as the relation of values to social forms, the comparability of values, and the significance of personal commitments.
