GOVT-395 Dept Sem:Emotional/Psychological Costs of Liberalism
Fall for 2014-2015
Faculty:
  • Glass, James
  • Liberalism is a theory of liberty, of possessiveness and materialism. For many classical liberals, freedom meant the 'freedom' to pursue the market, to equate one's economic self interest with individualism. But there are psychological costs to the ideology of success and possessive individualism; and it is those costs, particularly in terms of alienation, loneliness, isolation, and fear, we will explore in a literature focusing on serious omissions in the political psychology of liberalism.
