Capitalism and Individualism: Reframing the Argument for a Free Society

The purely economic view of individualism, homo economicus, cannot provide a basis for understanding human reality. Machan mounts a robust argument for a conception of the individual that recognizes the values of the free market and civil liberties but avoids licensing the unbridled pursuit of self-interest.
