Raeder, Linda C. Independent Review. Spring 1998.
The recent attack on modern liberalism by “communitarianism” has caught the attention of many political theorists. The insights of F. A. Hayek prove especially helpful in understanding what is at stake in the communitarian/liberal debate. Hayek’s classical liberalism scarcely resembles the rationalistic, rights-based claims of modern liberalism and is at least partly sympathetic to communitarianism’s vision of the good society.
