|Title:||The Limits of Neo-Roman Liberty||Contributor(s):||Maddox, W Graham (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1294||Abstract:||While writers of the English Civil War abstracted from Roman sources a theory of liberty, the original 'res publica', always under the control of a unified and entrenched oligarchy, presents a threadbare fabric of liberty. Yet an impressive strand of modern republicanism follows this example: Philip Pettit's 'liberty as non-domination' appears to be inimical to notions of government power, overlooking that power is sometimes necessary to protect freedoms. Quentin Skinner sharpens this classical focus on a 'neo-Roman' theory. In Pettit a republican suspicion of popular government underplays contributions to the history of freedom from the Athenian democracy.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||History of Political Thought, 23(3), p. 418-431||Publisher:||Imprint Academic||Place of Publication:||London||ISSN:||0143-781X||Field of Research (FOR):||160609 Political Theory and Political Philosophy||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/imp/hpt/2002/00000023/00000003/320||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 77
