Abstract

The roots of liberalism can be traced back to the late sixteenth or early seventeenth century. It became a clear philosophical school during the Age of Enlightenment. The emergence of liberalism as an intellectual tradition is associated with the writings of key figures such as Locke , Rousseau and Kant. Early liberals were opposed to the dominant political forces of feudal capitalism of the period the established Church, absolutist monarchs and the landed gentry. They were committed to an alternative group of ideas, which included freedom of religion, constitutional rule, individual property and free trade
