Reviews

Those of us who work in moral and political philosophy owe a great debt of gratitude to the editors for taking such care in assembling this wonderful anthology. This is easily the best, most exhaustive collection on Freedom with which I am familiar. Christopher Wellman, Washington University in St Louis Among the main themes of this superb collection is that freedom has many dimensions, and among the many conditions of securing it is a willingness not to exaggerate the importance of securing everything. Every college should teach a course on freedom and its prerequisites, and Freedom: An Anthology would serve admirably as a primary reference text. David Schmidtz, University of Arizona
