A discussion of the competing utopian ideas of prominent LSE figures set in the context of the history of 20th century thought and literature, as well as in contemporary debates about politics across Europe. Friedrich Hayek, Karl Popper and Michael Oakeshott versus Harold Laski, RH Tawney and the founders of the School: the Webbs. What impact did their alternative visions have on British politics? Why did this debate have global significance? And who 'won' in the end?
