The Limits of Liberty

The issue of justification is at the center of any reflection about the
limits of liberty. In whose name may freedom be legitimately limited in
a society that considers it as its major value ? The emergence of an ethical
imperative highlights the underlying issue of the values that should
determine choice. It is also necessary to determine the right degree of
constraint that one may impose on individuals. The concept of balance,
which is consubstantial with liberal thought, finds here a new strength
implying the reformulation of problems in ethical terms which, in turn,
makes the search for the right balance between contradictory demands
even more difficult.
