Clive Hamilton argues that the anomaly of contemporary purchaser lifestyles is that we're disadvantaged of our internal freedom by means of our very pursuit of our personal wishes. He turns to metaphysics to discover a resource of transformation that lies past the cultural, political and social philosophies that shape the bedrock of up to date western inspiration.
His seek takes him to an unforeseen end: that we won't be really unfastened until we dedicate ourselves to an ethical lifestyles. the results of this end are profound, they usually problem many deeply held ideals in sleek secular society.
The Freedom Paradox is a daring and demanding paintings that is going to the guts of what it potential to be human.
