What would life be like without the state? What justifies the state? Who should rule? How much liberty should the citizen enjoy? How should property be justly distributed? This book examines the central problems involved in political philosophy and the past attempts to respond to theseproblems.Jonathan Wolff looks at the works of Plato, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Mill, Marx and Rawls (amongst others), examining how the debates between philosophers have developed, and searching for possible answers to these provocative questions. His final chapter looks at more recent issues, particularlythat of feminist political theory.
