Over at the Bleeding Heart Libertarians blog, we are in the middle of a symposium on Michael Huemer’s new book, The Problem of Political Authority: An Examination of the Right to Coerce and the Duty to Obey.
Huemer’s book has two main philosophical aims: to refute the main philosophical arguments for the political authority and legitimacy of government, and to construct a defense of political anarchism.
An introduction to the symposium, with an index to contributions as they go up, can be found here. The first contribution, from Kevin Vallier, is here, and the second, from Christopher Morris, is here. The symposium will run through the end of the next week, with future contributions from Bas van der Vossen, Massimo Renzo, and a response from Michael Huemer.
Stop on by and join the conversation!
