The chapter reconstructs the emergence and formulation of Karl Polanyi’s central research question: How is responsible freedom possible in a complex modern society? The origins of this question in the time before the First World War and the confrontations with the challenge of neoliberalism and fascism are discussed. It is shown that Karl Polanyi’s concept of freedom has four dimensions. Polanyi connects negative, positive, substantial and social freedom with each other and formulates a highly innovative research programme which forms the basis for The Great Transformation and later works.
