This chapter examines the history of the creation of an urban society in Liverpool in which the principle of universal social responsibility would be viable. It discusses how the pioneers laid down the idea of developing the quality of life of a community as the target of social reform and a guideline for community development. This chapter also describes the process by which the age-old pursuit of individual betterment gave way to the novel concept of the improvement of the quality of life of the community as a whole.
