Summary

Summary

This collection of papers discusses many of the most significant issues facing liberalism as a political philosophy. In particular it concentrates on citizenship and autonomy and the interconnections between them and rights. How can the autonomy of the individual be reconciled with the fact that the individual is a social being? Is there an autonomy which avoids our estrangement, as individuals, from each other? Is there a solidarity which avoids engulfment by the group of which we are members? What forms of citizenship are consistent with autonomy? What range of rights can be recognized without interfering with society as a whole? These questions and others are addresed in this book.
