Overview

Herbert Spencer and the Limits of the State: The Late Nineteenth-century Debate between Induvidualism and Collectivism by Michael Taylor

Contains a representative sample of writings by the Individualist and their critics, and also by some leading Victorian politicians who attempted to translate political theories into practical politics. The debates between these thinkers raise some fundamental issues about the nature of liberty and the role and limits of the State which remain with us still. Many present-day concerns, including the issues at stake between liberals and communitarians, are to be found prefigured in the pages of this collection.
