(p.139) 7 Liberalism and Analytical Political Philosophy
Liberalism as Ideology

David Weinstein

Oxford University Press

This chapter builds on Michael Freeden’s reservations about what he refers to as ‘American philosophical liberalism’. It argues that the analytical preoccupations of this practice of philosophizing have caused contemporary liberals to narrate the liberal tradition too simplistically. It explores, in particular, how political theorists have misinterpreted J. S. Mill, and as a consequence forgotten Henry Sidgwick.

Keywords:   Michael Freeden, American philosophical realism, J. S. Mill, Henry Sidgwick
