Hayek and Modern Liberalism

Chandran Kukathas

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the kind of moral theory that could underpin Hayek's defence of liberalism. It considers various interpretations of his thought with two primary concerns: first, to discover whether any of them, singly or in combination, account for the ethical basis of his liberalism; and secondly, to see if there is a satisfactory moral theory grounding that liberal philosophy.

Keywords:   moral theory, Hayek, liberalism, ethical basis, liberal philosophy
