Cabinet 58: Theft

Publisher Cabinet

ISBN 9781932698664

Across history, the morality of taking what belongs to another has been of concern to both theologians and lawmakers. Yet theft necessarily raises the question of what constitutes ownership, opening onto a longstanding philosophical debate about the relationship between property, freedom and virtue that stretches from Plato through Aquinas, Kant and Marx to contemporary theorists of intellectual property. 'Cabinet 58', with a special section on "Theft," includes Susan Brewer on intellectual property debates in the agricultural and pharmaceutical industries, Merle Harman on "beach theft" in the Caribbean, and more.
