Feser on Rothbard as a philosopher
|Title:||Feser on Rothbard as a philosopher||Authors:||Casey, Gerard||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5316||Date:||Aug-2009||Abstract:||In 'Rothbard as a philosopher' (Feser 2006) Edward Feser harshly criticises the philosophical abilities of Murray Rothbard. According to Feser, Rothbard seems unable to produce arguments that doesn't commit obvious fallacies or produces arguments that fail to address certain obvious objections. His criticism centres on what he regards as Rothbard's principal argument for the thesis of self-ownership. In this paper, I attempt to show that Feser's criticism fails of it purpose and that Rothbard is very far from being the epitome of philosophical ineptitude that Feser takes him to be.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Center for the Study of Innovative Freedom||Copyright (published version):||2009 the author||Keywords:||Rothbard; Self-ownership||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
