dc.description.abstractIn this thesis, I explore the benefits of liberalism and capitalism, but I also criticize some of their ideological tendencies, criticizing them for overemphasizing the role of politics and economics in human flourishing. First, I examine the benefits of liberalism and capitalism. Then, I evaluate the meaning of ideology and eventually distill a definition of ideology that I will use to evaluate liberalism and capitalism. Thereafter, I then describe the ideological tendencies in liberalism and capitalism, finding that ideological liberalism and ideological capitalism result in the reduction of mankind. I conclude that ideological liberalism and ideological capitalism are harmful. The proper way to interact with liberalism and capitalism is thus not to hold them as ideologies, but rather to use them as tools for the benefits they supply.en_US
