The modern liberalism is a political thought movement which develops by the enlightenment of western. Firstly it used by Adam Smith as a notion. Liberalism comes into prominence with dignity and supporting the true things as freedom of religion and conscience, the leadership of mind, determinate countries, private ownership etc.
Sophism was born in V. century. Protagoras is the first agent of sophism. Sophism is a philosophical quadrat that which one criticizes aristocratic and entrenched thoughts, takes people in to the center and the top of life by idea of metron antropos panton (human is measure of everything), based on humanity while legislation and implement .sophists suppose the successful person as happy person, gives a pragmatical meaning to life. Generally, we can tell that the sophists have a democratic approach. This works handles sophism as a messenger of modern liberalism and the agent in Ancient Greece with “against the aristocratic constitution, criticize sing entrenched thoughts, takes humanity to the center of everything and with pragmatic nascency”.
