Delineates the principal ideas that make up my theory of freedom as negative liberty. Raises a number of challenges to positive-liberty theories and to the civic-republican conception of freedom, with sustained criticisms of the work of Quentin Skinner and Philip Pettit. It likewise objects to moralized conceptions of particular freedoms and unfreedoms. It pays particular attention to the ways in which such freedoms and unfreedoms exist over time.

Keywords:   civic republicanism, freedom, Thomas Hobbes, liberty, negative liberty, Philip Pettit, positive liberty, time, Quentin Skinner, unfreedom
