The Ideology of the Individual in Capitalist Development
O'Flynn demonstrates the way that liberal ideas have served the interests of capitalist development from their very beginning.
Scholarly attempts to explain the development of liberal individualism over the course of modern history have tended to focus on key principles and doctrines. As a correction, this book shows that as capitalism the theories, doctrines and moral precepts comprising liberal individualism change and evolve, while its vital social function is preserved.
