Freedom and Reform: Essays in Economics and Social Philosophy
Frank H. Knight
Liberty Fund, 1982
The fifteen essays in this collection, first published in 1947, treat a variety of economic, social, political, and philosophical problems and were written by a legendary professor of economics at the University of Chicago.
Professor Knight (1885–1972) wrote from the viewpoint of ethics as well as economics. His own words best describe his objective in this book: "The basic principle of science—truth or objectivity—is essentially a moral principle. . . . The presuppositions of objectivity are integrity, competence, humility. . . . All coercion is absolutely excluded in favor of free meeting of free minds."
In Defense of Freedom and Related Essays
Frank S. Meyer
Liberty Fund, 1996
Meyer has done more than anyone in America to search out the metaphysics of freedom.—William F. Buckley, Jr., Founding Editor, National Review
When it first appeared in 1962, In Defense of Freedom was hailed by Richard M. Weaver as "a brilliant defense of the primacy of the person" and an effective "indictment of statism and bureaucratism." Meyer examines the tension between the freedom of the person and the power of social institutions. In his view, both the dominant Liberalism and the "New Conservatism" of the American tradition place undue emphasis on the claims of social order at the expense of the individual person and liberty. http://library.ime.bg/in-defense-of-freedom-and-related-essays/
