(p.240) Chapter 15 Conclusion
Knowledge and Coordination

Daniel B. Klein

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the historical narrative about the fortunes of a liberal philosophical outlook since the time of Adam Smith. It focuses on the S outlook, a complex that formulates certain central statements on important issues that develop arguments and hold certain attitudes about discoursing. At the center of the S outlook is a statement that involves the liberty principle, which implies that in a choice between a pair of policy reforms, the reform that ranks higher in liberty is the more desirable.

Keywords:   liberal philosophical outlook, Adam Smith, S outlook, central statements, liberty principle, policy reforms
