This book provides the first systematic account of the nature and importance of our judgements about degrees of freedom. Author Ian Carter analyzes the normative assumptions behind the claim that individuals are entitled to a measure of freedom. He argues for a conception of freedom that not only reflects commonly held intuitions about who is freer than who but is also compatible with a liberal or freedom-based theory of justice.
