(p.195) Chapter 10 Freedom and Coercion: An Alternative Account
The Neo-liberal State

Raymond Plant (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

In this chapter the neo‐liberal account of freedom and coercion expounded in Chapter 3 is subjected to sustained critical analysis and is found wanting in its own terms. This is crucially important because the neo‐liberal society is supposed to be a society which has freedom as one of, if not, its central constitutive value. Hence, if this concept and the linked idea of coercion cannot be made coherent in the terms which neo‐liberals allow themselves then this puts a very serious question mark against the neo‐liberal project.
