In the intellectual tradition of Europe, there is the core of the desire to be recognized as a human being in an idea of dignity, freedom and moral will, supported by the power of human reason. The abovementioned characteristics limit and at the same time allow the reflection of steady conceptual structures in the evolution of liberalism. The present study deals with the civilization trajectory of human reality in the evolution of liberalism, where the individualistic ethos constantly oscillates about the attempts to accept social, moral and collective identity transcending the individual dimension of existence. From our point of view, the perspective of awareness of ambiguity and paradoxical content of individual parameters of liberalism, is a mirror image of how those conditions differ from the standard assumptions formulated in theory.

Key words: liberalism, freedom, rationalism, idea of moral will
