Schoeman, Ferdinand David, MacLean, Douglas
This book attacks the assumption found in much moral philosophy that social control as such is an intellectually and morally destructive force. It replaces this view with a richer and deeper perspective on the nature of social character aimed at showing how social freedom cannot mean immunity from social pressure. The author demonstrates how our competence as rational and social agents depends on a constructive adaptation of social control mechanisms. Our facility at achieving our goals is enhanced, rather than undermined, by social control.Schoeman, Ferdinand David is the author of 'Privacy and Social Freedom' with ISBN 9780521415644 and ISBN 0521415640.
