Review of Histoire du liberalisme en Europe.
Volume 11, No. 1 (2008)
This volume sets out to debunk the common myths about the origins of liberal thought: that Anglo-Saxon thinkers had a privileged role in the history of liberalism; that liberal ideas were somehow a byproduct of the demand for human rights and for democracy; or that human rights thought was exclusively rooted in the Lockean tradition. Thirty-six researchers from eight countries presented thirty-eight papers on the history of European liberalism in Paris between 2001 and 2005, discussing well over a hundred different individual thinkers and their role on liberal thought.
