Freedom, self‐ownership, and libertarian philosophical Diaspora

Critical Review 11 (3):323-344 (1997)
Abstract
In Self?Ownership, Freedom, and Equality, G.A. Cohen argues that libertarianism does not follow from respect for freedom, and that libertarianism cannot be grounded on self?ownership. Cohen's arguments are, for the most part, compelling. That leaves the libertarian philosopher the options of either moving leftwards?for example, along the lines of Philippe Van. Parijs 's Real Freedom for All?or embracing some form of consequentialism. Either way, the result is the abandonment of characteristically libertarian political philosophy
