Oppression in this sense is structural rather than the result of a few people’s choice or policies. Services on Demand Journal.

The neo-republican freedom, defined as non-domination, should not be seen only as an intermediate option between the formulations of non-interference and self-control, but as an ideal to be followed. While the negative notion concerns avoiding interference in the actions of individuals and groups, the positive notion is concerned with issues related to the nature and exercise of power.


In view of the distinction between ‘liberty from’ and ‘liberty for’, the idea of treating freedom as non-oppression, although formulated negatively freedom as absence of oppressionis largely concerned with the nature and exercise of power. The value of freedom is connected to the fact that we have to choose between different, and sometimes equally valuable and conflicting goods.

In “Two Concepts of Liberty”, Isaiah Berlin develops the approach that deals with freedom in a dichotomous way. In this view, free is the one who does not live under the arbitrary desire or domination of others. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Berlin describes the negative freedom as follows:.

It is important to note that, when we speak of a broader plan — a plan of structures of oppression — we must be clear that such structures involve everyone: The Proper Study of Mankind – An anthology of essays.

In this way, thinking of women as a group is important to reflect on the social and structural issues related to lack of freedom. First of all, it is important to remember that ” You lack political liberty or freedom only if you are prevented from attaining a goal by other human beings BERLIN,p.

Such theories usually have a reference to women’s experiences of care, and understand power as a capacity for transformation and empowerment.

The first aspect to be integrated is, as we have seen, linked to systems of domination. To answer, Hirschmann states that ” While I have tried to avoid paternalistic positions, or the problems of ‘second guessing’, distancing myself from assessments on what would be the ‘true free choices’, my reading on freedom requires a critical posture about the production and reproduction of structures of power asymmetry.

Second, in that sense, structure and agency are not opposites, but rather interdependent; the author defines structure:. However, individual choices are related to the context, and it is important in two ways: At the same time, it is interesting to note that the perspective that I am developing in this article assigns an important role to individual and collective subject, referring to the possibility of making a choice as essential to freedom.

Resulting from her understanding of freedom as non-domination, Einspahr places emphasis on the relevance of patriarchal power thinking as a male-dominated structure and its complex interactions with other estudso structures.

Pettit b emphasises that the concept of freedom as non-domination comes from an ancient tradition which means not being dominated or subjugated by anyone 1. Oppression is marked by contradictions; domination systems have few ‘pure’ victims or oppressors.

Domination, a structural concept describing power relations, focuses on the ability of some groups to systematically interfere in the lives of other groups, whether or not such power is exercised by all individuals so capable.

The relevance of the individual dimension in the reading about freedom I am proposing distances us from Einspahr’s proposal. In other words, we should mobilize the idea of women as a group towards a purposeful political theory 5. The Proper Study of Mankind: This is not a new concept of freedom; it results largely from Hirschmann’sfreedom formulation, at the same time it highlights the idea of non-domination and contestability offered by Pettit b while maintaining that freedom is linked to the choices.

These considerations about patriarchy, as well as about structure and agency, assist us in the development of reading freedom from the idea of non-oppression.
