Freedom to starve

In a terrible sign of the aging process, my mind went blank when I was trying to remember the name of a liberal political and legal theorist in a lecture this morning, when given his death this week the only name that circled round in my head was Ronald Dworkin.

I was, of course, thinking of Jeremy Waldron. Check out Chapter 13 in his collected papers, called ‘Homelessness and the Issue of Freedom’.

And no, you’re right, “Waldron” doesn’t start with “B”. Age is a terrible thing.
