Twelve philosophers, historians, and political philosophers assess aspects of socialism in the context of its recent reversals. Some essays examine the moral and political values that made socialism appealing to intellectuals, or evaluate whether aspects of socialism should be preserved, such as its quest for equality and community. Others examine whether free-market systems need to be further modified in response to ongoing socialist critiques or attest to the continuing validity of socialism by suggesting ways in which it may still have a productive future.
