Social Freedom and its Parameters

Felix E. Oppenheim

Journal of Theoretical Politics, 1995, vol. 7, issue 4, 403-420

Abstract: I shall first propose definitions of social freedom (to be distinguished from other concepts of freedom) which could be acceptable regardless of one's moral point of view. The second part examines the possibility of measuring various parameters of social unfreedom and freedom. Finally, I shall inquire into the possibility of aggregating these various magnitudes into a measure of an agent's net total freedom.
