The Creed of Social Responsibility

(p.25) Chapter 2 The Creed of Social Responsibility
The Disinherited Society
Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on the development of the creed of social responsibility in Liverpool during the 1920s. It describes the emergence and coming together of moral commitment of the merchant community, the idealism of the young university and the passion of the women's demand for equal citizenship. It suggests that the university would never have come into being without Liverpool's philanthropic tradition and explains that the idea of making provision for higher education originated with the little group of Unitarians.
