Lecture until 52:43, then Q&A. From the IHS Vault: Dr. Davies shows how classical liberal ideas grew as an intellectual movement in the seventeenth century and gradually gained popular support. This rise of political ideas based on free markets and individual liberty achieved several notable political goals in the 19th century, such as abolition of slavery, extension of the franchise, and freer international trade.
Filmed in 2006 at the IHS summer seminar "Advanced Studies in Freedom" at Bryn Mawr College. Produced by Inextinguishable Productions.
