Coercion, Freedom and Exploitation

Series:

Michael J. Gorr

In this book an attempt is made to provide rigorous, systematically interrelated analyses of three fundamental concepts in politcal theory: coercion, freedom, and exploitation. In particular, it is argued that while exploitation has an ineliminable normative dimension, coercion and freedom are best explicated in purely descriptive terms. The resulting conceptual framework is intended to facilitate the clear and efficient expression of substantive issues in political theory.
Contents: This is the first book length analysis of the concepts of coercion, freedom and exploitation. The proposed conceptual framework is intended to facilitate the clear and efficient expression of substantive issues in political theory.
