Free Progressivism maybe?

More from "A New Name for an Old Whig", by Samuel Gregg:

It is perhaps improbable that a single phrase that captures all the ideals and transcends all the difficulties outlined above will ever be coined. After all, we are seeking an expression which, in Hayek’s words, ‘[pieces] together the broken fragments of a tradition’81 that encapsulates Burke’s political reflections, Smith’s economics, Tocqueville’s constitutionalism, Hume’s scepticism, Ferguson’s evolutionism, and Acton’s view of history.
