Philip Pettit on Liberalism - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 851
Liberalism/Pettit: although Pettit is opposed to liberalism as a representative of republicanism, he shares with it concerns about a dominant state that restricts individual choices and ultimately denies political participation. His key model-theoretical and programmatic goal derived from this is therefore: freedom without dominance, but certainly state support for the attainment of individual freedom.
