Liberalism: Hits and Misses
"Liberalism" is a word that is hard not to encounter these days - but for all we hear it thrown around, what does it truly mean, both in theory and in practice? In this class, we will take a historian's view of the gradual rise of liberalism through world history, exploring its links with both creativity and science. We will delve deep into various supporters' modes of thinking about life, problems, economics, religion and ethics. We'll also examine examples of liberalism in history, the opposition it has faced from the right and the left alike, and the relationship between liberalism and conservatism to identify both its greatest successes and its greatest failures.
