Podcast: ‘The Revolution Continues with Rutger Claassen Radically Rethinking Freedom, Justice and Property’

Prof. Rutger Claassen appeared as a guest on the Another World is Podable podcast, in which the host prof. Peter Bloom aims to ‘explore the most radical social experiments and ideas today’.

In the podcast, they discuss what Claassen, in his most recent book Capabilities in a Just Society: A Theory of Naviational Agency, has introduced as ‘navigational agency’: a notion of agency which takes seriously the communitarianist critique that our personhood is ultimately embedded in the social practices in which we take part, while simultaneously saving the traditional notion of autonomous agency that lies at the heart of liberal theory. In addition, they explore how the concept of naviational agency might provide us with a way of thinking about freedom and property rights.
