Running Head: THE PROBLEM OF LIBERTY 1 Before we can decide one’s position on positive versus negative liberty and define our view of what is permissible for the state to do; it s vital to elaborate as well as distinguish between the positive and negative liberty. According to Berlin (1958); negative liberty is defined as lack of obstacles or barriers in life while positive liberty is the process of acting in a manner that contributes’ to one’s prowess to realize their dreams as well as purpose. For example; let us assume that two people one with both and positive liberties are in a secluded and restricted camp. The person who is the negative camp is more likely to deny the fact that there is no significant necessity of the relationship between their freedom and desires. On the contrary; the person with a positive would think and react the opposite. It is said that once a person is free they may do things they do not desire (Berlin, 1958).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
