Summary

Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in republican political theory and, in particular, the republican conception of freedom as non-domination developed by Philip Pettit. This collection of essays offers one of the first sustained explorations of the notion of freedom as non-domination and its application in a range of fields, from democratic legitimacy, civic education, and workplace democracy to related debates on the nature of social equality, social freedom, and recognition, with Philip Pettit contributing a sophisticated account of the interrelations between freedom as non-domination and other dimensions of freedom. With republican political theory undergoing an unprecedented renaissance within contemporary political theory, this collection makes a significant contribution to current debates about the extension and further development of the ideal of republican freedom.

The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy.
