3).The two words from which Green formed the phrase are much older, of course, and he apparently thought that combining them required no elaborate. Although it is an ancient and much-discussed problem, political obligation continues to pose challenges to political and legal philosophers.

Some of these challenges are conceptual, for they require explanations of what a political obligation is and how it differs from other obligations, duties, or responsibilities. Other challenges concern the practical matters of whether and to.
