Abstract:
Liberalism, a political and economic doctrine becomes popular among philosophers, economists and political thinkers is the successor of Renaissance. Renaissance which means rebirth or revival of the Graeco-Roman learning in the 15th and 16th centuries paved the way for liberalism in Europe and in 19th century, it becomes a part of Indian political system. Liberalism founded with ideas of John Locke which deals with liberty, rights and equality of individual. Later on, with the light of Renaissance and fundamental ideas of 17th and 18th century European thinkerslike Rousseau, Smith, Ricardo, Hayek and Nozick etc. had strengthen the path of liberalism. With the impact and influence of renaissance concepts of economic freedom, democratic government, civil rights etc. had got a new orientation. Historical and descriptive method has been used to get elicit information regarding renaissance and liberalism. This paper also tries to find out a correlation between renaissance and liberalism. Indian Renaissance popularly known as Bengal Renaissance, a brain child of European Renaissance initially was a socio-cultural, intellectual awakening and artistic movement, but gradually it became political. It was started with Raja Ram Mohan Roy along with many other stalwarts like Vidyasagar, Vivekananda, Bankim Ch. Chattopadhyay, R. N. Tagore, J. C. Bose, etc. who had a greater contribution to the Indian Renaissance. Their writings, ideas and inventions are still helping to make a clear image of transition from medieval age to enter into a new liberal era.
