Knowledge as Property

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines two justificatory theories of private property: self-ownership and utility. It outlines the fundamental principles of these theories as reflected in John Locke's labour theory, Robert Nozick's theory of just entitlements, and Jeremy Bentham's utilitarian theory. These theories are still used in property discourse, either by themselves or in tandem, to legitimate separate property claims.

Keywords:   self-ownership, utility, private property, John Locke, labour theory, Robert Nozick, theory of just entitlements, Jeremy Bentham, utilitarian theory
