Liberalism, Childhood and Justice : Ethical Issues in Upbringing

Regular price £75.00 £0.00

This radical and critical account of family justice explores children's wellbeing and ethical issues in children's upbringing through the lens of political philosophy. Fowler reconceptualises what constitutes children's wellbeing, the duties of parents to promote children's wellbeing and the collective obligations of state and society to ensure that children's best interests are advanced and protected. Arguing that the wellbeing of children should not be measured in terms of subjective happiness but rather by them coming to hold an appropriate set of values and aspirations, Fowler challenges the dominant liberal model of parenting and calls instead for all citizens to take greater responsibility for guaranteeing that children lead flourishing lives.
