This chapter examines similar tenets of individualism, history, and myth while adding critical exposition of Baldwin’s views on freedom and liberty. Nicholas Buccola uses dialectic between Baldwin and Buckley in order to trace Baldwin’s views on freedom and the limits of politics, supported by Baldwin’s own essays. Buccola’s analysis of Buckley’s misunderstanding of Baldwin serves in its own way as a mirror in reflecting what can thus be gleaned from Baldwin’s work.

Keywords:   individualism, freedom, liberty, myth, dialectic, William F. Buckley Jr.
