The fundamental freedoms, of speech, conscience, privacy and religion, are now an essential part of the fabric of contemporary society, set down in our most basic laws and regularly invoked in our political and cultural debates. These freedoms play a vital role in securing the spaces and opportunities within which people are able to pursue their own lives in their own ways.

Independence of Mind takes this accepted thought a step further, by exploring the ways in which the fundamental freedoms help us to achieve something even more profound, by enabling us to arrive at beliefs, convictions and voices of our own, so that we truly come to think, believe and speak for ourselves in the rich and various ways that the freedoms then protect. Privacy grants us the distance and refuge from others necessary to develop views of our own; freedom of speech calls on us to imagine ways of expressing ourselves that are both true to the views we have developed and innovative in their own right; freedom of conscience enables each of us to create a distinctive rational personality in which to embed the convictions that we wish to treat as non-negotiable; freedom of religion allows groups of us to endorse certain beliefs as articles of faith, free from the full demands of rational scrutiny.

Much has been written about the political and legal implications of the fundamental freedoms and their entrenchment in bills of rights. This is the first book to undertake a comprehensive philosophical examination of their moral bases. It offers a penetrating analysis of what makes these particular freedoms matter to us in the ways that they do, and of the true significance of their entrenchment in law.

Timothy Macklem is Professor of Jurisprudence at King's College, London

Review:

This impressive addition to the literature on freedom enriches our understanding of the work done by liberties such as religion, speech, conscience, and privacy. Going beyond the familiar idea that the fundamental freedoms protect people's ability to pursue and express their deep personal, political, and religious commitments, Macklem suggests that these freedoms also help create the conditions in which we can develop these commitments and make them our own. * James Nickel, Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, Arizona State University * This is a most worthwhile book, and Macklem brings his distinctive insight and voice to the questions he takes up. Macklem is right that the question of the 'philosophical grounding of our most fundamental political freedoms' has been oddly neglected, even as analyses of these freedoms have multiplied. Macklem's perspective on many of these questions is genuinely novel, which is rare given how much ink is spilled on some of these topics. The book will warrant the sustained attention of legal philosophers and philosophically minded lawyers. That is true of very little that is written on these issues. * Brian Leiter, Hines H. Baker & Thelma Kelley Baker Professor of Law, University of Texas *
