[cross-posted at Liberty & Power]
A nice birthday present came in the mail today: my anthology with Tibor, Anarchism/Minarchism: Is a Government Part of a Free Country?, hot off the presses. It looks very nice. (Well, at 40¢ a page, it’d better!)
The book features contributions from a variety of philosophical perspectives within libertarianism, including consequentialist, deontological, contractarian, Randian, and Hayekian approaches.
PART 1: MINARCHISM
1. Why the State Needs a Justification – Lester H. Hunt
2. Libertarianism, Limited Government and Anarchy – John Roger Lee
4. Objectivism against Anarchy – William R Thomas
5. Reconciling Anarchism and Minarchism – Tibor R. Machan
PART 2: ANARCHISM
6. Radical Freedom and Social Living – Aeon James Skoble
7. The State: From Minarchy to Anarchy – Jan Narveson
8. The Obviousness of Anarchy – John Hasnas
9. Market Anarchism as Constitutionalism – Roderick T. Long
10. Liberty, Equality, Solidarity: Toward a Dialectical Anarchism – Charles Johnson
It strikes me that four of the ten contributors have some connection to the Auburn Philosophy Department. Tibor and I are Professor Emeritus and Associate Professor, respectively; Aeon was an Instructor here in 1993-1994; and Charles was an undergrad philosophy major here, graduating in 2003.
