In the first part, he focussed on the epistemological basis of liberalism: the first principles that form its foundation. We learned that the hedonistic principle, combined with utilitarianism formed the basis of this ideology: the philosophy that pleasure, for as many people as possible, is the highest good in life.

After an explanation about the epistemological basis of liberalism, Hijab talked about the history of liberalism. From the influences of John Locke and Immanuel Kant, all the way to one of the most essential products of liberalism: The Human Rights Declaration.
