0 Reviews
In this collection, thirteen prominent philosophers and political scientists address the nature of liberalism, its origins, and its meaning and proper interpretation. Some essays examine the writings of liberalism's earliest defenders or the influence of classical liberalism on the American founders. Some focus on the Progressive movement and the rise of the administrative state, while others defend particular conceptions of liberalism or examine liberal theories of justice. Several essays discuss the U.S. Constitution. Other essays address the limits of economic freedom or focus on the nature and extent of property rights and the government's power of eminent domain.
