It is worth noting that these, as well as other feminist authors, zobre the relevance and importance of Pettit’s formulations.

However, individual choices are related to the context, and it is important in two ways: The patriarchal power as a domination structure is independent on whether individual men exercise this power or not, but is also independent from the fact that there are women who individually do not experience the most obvious forms of domination in their lives EINSPAHR,p. While Humanidadee 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.

Therefore, the notion of ‘social construction’ is fundamental to the feminist vision of freedom developed by Hirschmann This paper explores a theoretical and political approach to discuss uumanidade idea and ideal of freedom. After all, the author’s theory raises the question of domination as a key issue for the contemporary political thinking and, therefore, there are meeting points with different feminist hu,anidade.

Returning to the particular reading of freedom, what I am offering in this article is that we could understand freedom as freedom from oppressionwhich means to say that to be free is not to suffer domination. Pettit b believes that domination is characterized by arbitrary interference. Certainly, the choice of illustrating the idea of domination with an example of a woman’s situation in the domestic sphere is not random, and it somehow demonstrates Pettit’s concern to dialogue with feminist political theory.


Isaiah Berlin

Oppression in this sense is structural rather than the result of a few people’s choice or policies. For this reason, the same person can be both a member of multiple dominant groups and also a member of multiple subordinate groups. Thinking freedom by the ‘key’ of not oppression makes it possible to reflect on how the ‘free’ choices are made, which involves at least two equally important and coexistent dimensions — the social and the individual. Reading freedom from the ‘key’ of oppression allows us to think of not only ‘spaces’ of freedom, but also who is free.

In this paper, I want to draw attention to Hirschmann critique to Pettitespecially the question that he neglects the social context in his formulation about freedom.

I share with Amy Allen’s power analysis sobge view that: However, in this case, the domination is not configured just as an arbitrary interference perpetrated by something or someone, but the very notion of freedom would demand attention to the structures of oppression — structures involving the construction of choice and those who choose — as domination sources. Being free, in this sense, is to be able to choose, taking into account the construction of choices by people and the perception that people have about their own choices and what each one understands about what a choice is and which ones are available.

Reading Freedom from the Theme of Oppression

The social construction happens constantly, quietly and every day. I would like to emphasise that I do not intend to establish a criteria or formulas that somehow establish where to start and where to end the true freedom; yet, I believe that my reading of freedom is a useful tool. Berlin describes the negative freedom as follows: Interference constitutes an intentional act by which the agents are responsible.


This guide is also a tool for carrying out the concrete changes to increase freedom. Before I explore an answer to this question, we could also reflect about the relevance z irrelevance of maintaining iisaiah distinction between positive and negative freedom.

This is not a new concept of freedom; it results largely from Hirschmann’sberin 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. An act is perpetrated on an arbitrary basis, we can say, if it is subject just to the arbitriumthe decision or judgment, of the agent; the agent was in a position to choose it or not choose it, at their pleasure” PETTIT, bp.

Hirschmann weighs the usefulness of her constructivist idea of freedom, and her conclusions are not only relevant with regard to constructivist freedom, but also help us to think through the reading proposal that I am using.

To think in broad structures of domination is to think that such structures place people in society, putting someone in a privileged position while some others in subordinate and vulnerable situations.

Berlin’s two contrasting notions are freedom in its positive sense, characterized as ‘self-control’, and humwnidade in its negative sense, conceived as ‘non-interference’. The relevance of the individual dimension in the reading about freedom I am proposing distances us from Einspahr’s proposal. The idea of reading freedom from the theme of oppression articulates the concern with the notion of plurality of choices, non-domination and the construction of the subject who chooses.
