Felix Oppenheim e l'analisi della libertà sociale

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This article discusses the notions of social freedom and freedom of choice in the writings of Felix E. Oppenheim. The author argues that Oppenheim's analysis of the concept of social freedom undervalues the significance of a double distinction: between action and choice of the agent, between opportunity and capacity (of action and choice). On this basis, the author presents a neutral definition of the concepts of overall freedom and social freedom, which distinguishes the notion of freedom, conceived as lack of external constraints on the agent, from that of capacity or power.
