Anarchism/Minarchism: Is a Government Part of a Free Country?

Assoc Prof Roderick T Long, Professor Tibor R Machan
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 01.10.2012 - 208 Seiten

It is well known that the radical libertarian philosopher Robert Nozick sharply distinguished his vision of the free society from egalitarian liberals such as John Rawls. Less remarked upon is the distinction he drew between the free society governed by a strictly limited government, commonly referred to as 'minarchism', and the society without any government at all – anarchism.

In this volume, the editors, Long – an anarchist – and Machan – a minarchist – have brought together a selection of specially commissioned essays from key theorists actively involved in this debate. Each tackles the question of whether or not a government forms a legitimate part of a free society or whether anarchy/minarchy is merely a distinction without a difference.
