Most liberal societies are deeply committed to the principle of free speech. At the same time, however, there is evidence that some kinds of speech are harmful in ways that are detrimental to important liberal values such as social equality. Might a genuine commitment to free speech require that we legally permit speech even when it is harmful, and even when doing so is in conflict with our commitment to values like equality? Kally Zarali regards Speech & Harm as a valuable guide for the theoretical exploration of the fields of linguistics and free speech.
