About this title

Synopsis:


John Locke's political theory has been the subject of many detailed treatments by philosophers and political scientists. But The Lockean Theory of Rights is the first systematic, full-length study of Locke's theory of rights and of its potential for making genuine contributions to contemporary debates about rights and their place in political philosophy. Given that the rights of persons are the central moral concept at work in Locke's and Lockean political philosophy, such a study is long overdue.


From the Back Cover:


"A detailed and comprehensive presentation of Lockean theory as a contribution to modern debates about rights, property, justice, government, and consent. It will be as indispensable to participants in these debates as it will to be those who are interested in the work of John Locke."--Jeremy Waldron, University of California, Berkeley


"[This book] is by far the most careful and balanced treatment of this central issue and will be of great value not only to philosophers but also to historians of ideas."--John Dunn, Cambridge University
