In this collection of important essays, some of the brightest minds in economics and political philosophy opine on the nature of man in a social world. Although independent in thought, men and women are dependent on each other for those things they cannot do themselves. Where is the line to be drawn between the individual and the group? What definition of “liberty” should thinkers and policy-makers alike pursue to further the cause of human progress and prosperity?
