What is free speech?; Why does it matter?
These are pressing questions. In this book, Alan Haworth outlines and analyses the main arguments philosophers have advanced in an attempt to answer them. He emphasises their strengths but also their weaknesses. It is essential to appreciate both if one is to grasp the true nature and value of free speech. The contemporary debate over free speech tends to be clouded by rhetoric. Against that, Haworth stands back and takes a cool look at the issues. This book comes down on the side of clarity.
