[From Latin liber: free.]

  1. (metaphysics) The doctrine that human beings have the power of volition (opposed to necessitarianism and determinism).

  2. (politics) A doctrine and movement that espouses every individual's liberty to act in complete freedom as long as they respect the rights of others (primarily by not initiating force or fraud). Libertarianism is similar to classical liberalism and sometimes verges on anarchism.
