Libertarianism defended by Tibor R Machan( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Tibor R. Machan analyses the state of the debate on libertarianism post Nozick. Going far beyond the often cursory treatment of libertarianism in major books and other publications he examines closely the alternative non-Nozickian defenses of libertarianism that have been advanced and, by applying these arguments to innumerable policy areas in the field, Machan achieves a new visibility and prominence for libertarianism
Libertarianism : for and against by Craig Duncan( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers dueling perspectives on the scope of legitimate government. Tibor R. Machan, a well-known political philosopher with libertarian convictions, argues for a minimal government devoted solely to protecting individual rights to life, liberty, and property. Stressing the sovereignty of each individual, Machan argues in favor of limiting democracy's scope and against the redistribution of wealth, or any other sort of taxation. In opposition to libertarianism, philosopher Craig Duncan defends democratic liberalism, which aims to ensure that all citizens have fair access to a life of dignity. This requires measures to protect equality of opportunity, as well as measures to ensure all have access to a decent minimum standard of living. In a dynamic exchange of arguments, critiques, and rebuttals, the two philosophers cut to the heart of this important debate, articulating and defending competing conceptions of such core values as political freedom and equality.--Publisher description

Liberty and equality by Tibor R Machan( )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Liberty and Equality takes an unflinching look at the difficult, often emotional issues that arise when egalitarianism collides with individual liberties. Personal autonomy, the contributors show, is sharply at odds with the "coercive egalitarianism" championed by many today. Through well-researched arguments, they offer their insightful views on the most important aspects of this often controversial issue. They examine the history of equality versus autonomy from ancient times through the present day, showing how it has become central to modern political and social debate, and explain why we all have a general right to liberty - but not a fundamental right to equality."--Jacket

The right road to radical freedom by Tibor R Machan( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work focuses on the topic of freedom. The author starts with the old issue of free will - do we as individual human beings choose our conduct, at least partly independently, freely? He comes down on the side of libertarians who answer Yes, and scorns the compatibilism of philosophers like Daniel Dennett, who try to rescue some kind of freedom from a physically determined universe. From here he moves on to apply his belief in radical freedom to areas of life such as religion, politics, a
The liberty option by Tibor R Machan( )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Liberty Option advances the idea that for compelling moral as well as practical reasons it is the free society - with the rule of law founded on the principles of private property rights, its complete respect for individual sovereignty and properly limited legal authorities - not one or another version of statism that serves justice best, is most prosperous and encourages the greatest measure of individual virtue on the part of the citizenry. The work shows why this is so and lays out so

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In [book title], [author] brings renewed attention to the central tenets of a political theory that takes liberty seriously, namely, that individuals have inalienable rights to their lives, liberty, and property (which includes, of course, the pursuit of happiness, their life agendas), that the only limitations on these rights should be the equal rights of others, and that the proper role of a country's legal authorities is to protect these rights."--Back cover
