Abstract
This paper discuses the concept of freedom via a theoretical literary analysis. By starting in footsteps of Isaiah Berlin and his definition of negative and positive freedom this paper demonstrates that there is a problem in this conception of freedom and offers a alternative model of analysis. These problems both internal and external to Berlins theory are clarified and analyzed. By recognizing that freedom is always in the triadic formation offered by Gerald C. MacCallum and the need drop agential constraints a model of freedom internal and external to the agent is produced. Internal and external focuses upon the single agent and the fact that freedom can exist as a mental process as well as physical action. Dropping the agential... (More)
This paper discuses the concept of freedom via a theoretical literary analysis. By starting in footsteps of Isaiah Berlin and his definition of negative and positive freedom this paper demonstrates that there is a problem in this conception of freedom and offers a alternative model of analysis. These problems both internal and external to Berlins theory are clarified and analyzed. By recognizing that freedom is always in the triadic formation offered by Gerald C. MacCallum and the need drop agential constraints a model of freedom internal and external to the agent is produced. Internal and external focuses upon the single agent and the fact that freedom can exist as a mental process as well as physical action. Dropping the agential constraints allows for the inclusion of incompetence as a restrictor of freedom. This drop intern allows for the aggregation of freedom in the method presented by Michael Garnett. This paper does not address the historical validity of negative and positive freedom merely suggesting a better alternative for theoretical analysis. (Less)
