ROUTLEDGE HANDBOOK OF CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL AND POLITICAL THEORY, G. Delanty, S. P. Turner, eds., March 2011
This chapter gives an overview of contemporary republican theory, with particular emphasis on the neo-Roman version associated with the work of Pettit and Skinner. Three sections discuss in turn the notion of the free person and the theory of freedom as non-domination, the conception of the free state required to institutionalise non-domination, and the implications of non-domination for distributive justice.
