Green’s idea of the ‘common good’, reconciled individual liberty with a conception of the ‘social’. qxp:GRAHAM Q7 11/12/07 09:11 Page 37 liberal traditions constrain individual liberty as much as political power. Individual freedom, the new liberals argued, could only be realised within a social order. Personal liberty was reconciled with equality of opportunity, and redefined in a new relationship between state and the individual. 58 A conception of the state as a positive and active institution came to occupy a central position in the new, social reformorientated liberalism.

While Hegel and Treitschke believed in freedom through the state, the German philosopher Wilhelm von Humboldt demanded freedom from the state. Humboldt pushed the neo-liberal ideal of a Rechtsstaat to its extreme form, limiting state activity to what is absolutely necessary – maintaining mutual security and removing obstacles that may impede citizens in the free exercise of their rights – without restricting the free actions of individuals. 30 Humboldt’s Essay on the Limits of State Action, written in 1792 and published in 1851, warned against regulation by the state which overrides the natural order of individual association.
