 							Domination and Human Flourishing

Show Summary Details


The various connections between freedom from domination and human flourishing are shown to account for the wrongness of domination. Benevolent and consensual dominations are shown not to detract from the general claim that freedom from domination is an important good. The limited significance of the claim from Hegel and others that domination will be self‐defeating is discussed.

Keywords: human flourishing; domination; freedom (liberty); consent; Hegel
