In the years since Isaiah Berlin delivered his famous lecture, Two Concepts of Liberty, his argument has been subject to sustained philosophical critique. So why should we continue to read Berlin’s lecture? What do we learn from it? Does it contain positive lessons or only cautionary tales? Sarah Fine argued that its most important lessons are not about the nature of liberty, but about the very discipline of philosophy.
