What are the philosophical roots of individualism? How has individualism manifested in Western culture, and what debates remain? These are the questions addressed by an excellent set of selections and excerpts compiled into this reader published by the Cato Institute. With sources ranging from Mill to Augustine to Spooner, the perspectives are provoking and seem thorough. On Liberty was my favorite selection, but not new to me. I also enjoyed content by Oscar Wilde and in several later selections addressing religious and social issues. ( )
