This lecture addresses the question of how “use” and “exclusivity” are related in property law, or how an owner’s liberty to use an owned thing is related to the owner’s right to exclude others from the thing. Relying mainly on the work of Immanuel Kant, the lecture seeks to show that the “right to use” and the “right to exclude” are not normatively independent of one another, but normatively interconnected or “integrative” aspects of ownership.
This is a public event.
