Résumé / Abstract

Libertarianism has been defended on the basis of consequentialist, contractarian and needs-based arguments. Neither of these arguments, however, provides a sound basis on which to ground a libertarian system of property rights. Many libertarians have suggested the ultimate value of liberty may provide such a ground. But it is not so obvious which notion of freedom libertarians have in mind, or how it could be argued that freedom has a value that always outweighs other values. I suggest that a very specific notion of freedom - freedom as normative control - underlies the insistence of libertarians that property rights are inviolable.
