Description - Liberalism: The Basics by John Charvet

Liberalism: The Basics is an engaging and accessible introduction to liberalism. The author provides a comprehensive overview of liberal practices, liberal values and critically analyses liberal theories, allowing for a richer understanding of liberalism as a whole.

The book is divided into three parts:

  • Liberal practices: the rule of law, free speech, freedom of association and movement, economic freedom and sexual freedom.
  • Liberal values: freedom, autonomy, equality, and the universal values of political societies - the communal identity - and well-being of their members.
  • Liberal theories: natural rights, utilitarianism, Kant's rationalism and the contemporary theories of John Rawls and the post-Rawlsians.

Presented in a clear and concise way, this book will be an ideal introduction for students and scholars of liberalism, political philosophy, political theory and political ideology.
