Hernan Camilo Medina Botero will present his research on the idea of maximizing freedom.

Hernan describes the topic of his talk in the following way:

“I will start by discussing a pure negative idea of freedom. If we endorse such conception of freedom, it is difficult to argue that freedom is something that can be maximized. Therefore, countering the pure negative idea of freedom, I will give some initial motivation to think of freedom in terms suitable to a maximization project.”
