Thinking for myself is almost taken for granted. I say almost because I feel a constant reminder of its value when I see the turmoil unfolding in the daily news. While conflict is nothing new, there is a darkness to what is happening these days that feels different from what I’ve seen in the past. The intensity of tribalism is on the upswing so I thought a revisit to this book might be worthwhile.
The foundational concepts of freedom outlined by the 19th century thinkers are sinking into history. We are forgetting the blood and tears that were shed over the march towards liberty and what a precious gem it is.
Liberty of conscience and freedom of thought are twin, core components of modern life in societies across the world. The ability to pursue one’s vision of the right and the good, coupled with liberty to pursue individual reason and enlightenment, helped produce so much of modern life that we may be apt to forget that libertarian philosophy was not dictated by Nature. Freethought and Freedom surveys the long history of religious and intellectual liberty, exploring their key ideas along the way.
