(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Quality of Freedom

H. Matthew Kramer

Oxford University Press

Presents the two basic principles of my analysis of freedom and unfreedom (the F Postulate and the U Postulate). It then explains the general aspiration of my book: the construction of a theory of socio-political freedom that leads to the conclusion that such freedom is measurable in principle. Indicates that the task of measuring each person’s overall freedom includes an evaluative component, but that it is primarily a matter of gauging the extent of each person’s physical latitude.

Keywords:   evaluation, freedom, liberty, measurement, negative liberty, unfreedom
