Miriam Bentwich reconstructs the liberal concept of freedom in order to suggest a theoretical framework within which two broad disputes in liberal discourse and praxis are explored: wealth redistribution and multiculturalism. This is grounded on a reformulation
of the essence of liberal freedom based on the political philosophy of two prominent earlier liberal philosophers who are also considered as the founders of two main contrasting liberal branches: John Locke, the initiator of classical liberalism, and John Stuart Mill, the founder of modern liberalism. This reformulation results in a proposed theoretical model about the two undetachable spheres of liberty, consisting of external-political and internal-conscious spheres. Using this model, Bentwich illuminates the empowering nature of liberal freedom and demonstrates how such a comprehension of liberty assists in casting it not as the source of the disputed issues, but rather as a potential anchor for resolving them.
