The Art of Not Being Too Governed

Jean-Claude Monod

The Art of Not Being Too Governed takes on a difficult challenge: to clear the name of political liberalism, against neoliberalism.

The philosopher calls for the recognition of authentic political liberalism as a basis for reaching a necessary balance between opposing powers, and for imposing limitations on state prerogatives.
