William of Ockham on Freedom - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 185
Freedom/Ockham/Höffe: With the justification of worldly rule the second political motive emerges: Ockham's theory of personal and, because of it, also political freedom. Because people are fully responsible for their actions, they have the right to shape their political institutions without being patronized by the church. As a result, secular rule is only legitimate if it is based on a free agreement between people.
Höffe: Here Ockham anticipates the modern legitimation of the state, the theory of the social contract. >Ockham/Höffe.
