A Guide to Research and Study Inside HSR

Aristotle, Human Rights, and Classical Liberal Ethical Theory
How does one locate the source of Human Rights and the true nature of individualistic ethics? Does Aristotle provide an adequate basis for either? Professor Henry Veatch explores these questions in his review of two books: "Liberty and Nature" and "The Virtue of Prudence."

The Literature of Nonviolent Resistance and Civilian-Based Defense
Can one successfully liberalize or overthrow a tyrannical government without resorting to violence? Is it realistic to resist a foreign invader through non-violent means? Bryan Caplan considers both of these questions in a classical liberal context in his review of the literature and ideas of nonviolent resistance and civilian-based defense.
