Liberty, Property and Markets : A Critique of Libertarianism, Hardback Book

Liberty, Property and Markets : A Critique of Libertarianism Hardback

Part of the Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Philosophy series

Description

Libertarianism attempts to establish a set of property rights as a complete political morality, its argument proceeding from liberty tout court, as the unique foundational aspect of well being that grounds rights.

In this book, Attas presents a sympathetic reconstruction of the libertarian argument and then brings to bear a critical evaluation leading to an ultimate rejection of libertarianism. Exposing the limitations of libertarianism and disclosing its errors, Attas argues that the rights which libertarians adopt with respect to persons (self-ownership), natural resources (original acquisition) and products are indefensible given what liberty must be.
