Title Towards a classic Liberalism as a defence of personal intimacy Summary This essay is an attempt to achieve a new version of classical liberalism, in such a way that could be considered a road beyond two opposite views. On the one hand, the classical liberal position in which the famous Mill’s harm principle is taken along with certain kind of moral scepticism in matters of individual choices. On the other hand, a more classical natural law position, where we have to take care of the objective moral choices of humane beings, in such a way the government intervention could be the result. So we propose to go beyond the debate using the key concept of personal intimacy as the hard core of a research program where the individual liberty is as important as our moral duties in relation to other people, community and the common good. Keywords Classical liberalism, libertarianism, natural law, humane person, intimacy.
