Abstract

Liberalism is often seen as the constitutive ideology of the West. But what exactly does it mean to be a liberal or to espouse liberal values? That question is rather harder to answer. Liberalism is a term employed in a dizzying variety of ways in political thought and social science. This panel examines how our contemporary understanding of liberalism took shape since the term was first introduced into political debate in the early 19th century. In doing so, it aims to contribute to a better understanding of the norms and values we inhabit today.
