Private and Non-private Property
Critics have seldom attempted any analysis of modern property institutions which exhibits that which unites, and that which divides, differing conceptions of property — in particular, what precisely is ‘ownership’ when ascribed to private persons or groups or to agencies discharging public functions. This chapter attempts this task. It shows that conceptions of private property are logically prior to conceptions of non-private property, and that justifications for the latter are parasitic on justifications or disjustifications for the former.
