Emancipation

Emancipation, originally a term in Roman law and name given to the process of the manumission of a son by his father; the son was sold to a third party and after the sale became sui juris; it is now applied to the remission of old laws in the interest of freedom, which Carlyle regards in his “Shooting Niagara,” as the sum of nearly all modern recent attempts at Reform.
