'Free speech debates are more than "radicals" vs "liberals"' says Professor Eric Heinze
11 January 2017
Eric Heinze, Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), writes on free speech in a piece for Aeon. “If we want to avoid the impasses and repetitions plaguing the free-speech debates, one way is to stop assuming that ‘the liberal position’ always dictates one outcome, and ‘the radical position’ another. Both approaches supply plausible justifications for supporting restrictions on public discourse – but even stronger grounds for opposing them,” he says.
