The following works deal with the idea of private property from a number of perspectives: as a “right” which all individuals have (philosophical), as the basis for the rule of law in a free society (legal), as a key aspect of any properly functioning free market society (economic), and as an important part of the emergence of free societies in the West (historical). Some of the works are critical of the classical liberal idea of property (e.g. Rousseau, Bentham, George).
