Formatted Abstract/Summary
It is arguable that freedom of speech, although it is usually thought of as a
'negative' liberty, is central to the capabilities approach as outlined by Martha
Nussbaum. In this chapter I investigate the prominence of freedom of speech in
Martha Nussbaum's capabilities approach, in order to argue that freedom of
speech is an essential component of it.  [introduction extract]
