Faggion on Why a Hedgehog Cannot Have Political Obligations @Srta_ALBF

Andrea Faggion, State University of Londrina, has published Why a Hedgehog Cannot Have Political Obligations at 33 Ratio Juris 317 (2020). Here is the abstract.

According to Ronald Dworkin, political obligation is to be justified as an associative obligation through membership in certain political communities. In this regard, I first argue that the concept of an associative obligation cannot help us to account for precise moral obligations. Second, I analyze certain disanalogies between paradigmatic cases of associative obligation and political obligation in order to show the inability of the former to justify the enforcement of a comprehensive obligation such as the latter. Finally, I argue that Dworkin could not have provided a better argument: His theory of law makes him incapable of justifying political obligation.
