Product description

Review

'An excellent book... Among its virtues, the book reveals how many of these soft-spoken types engage in one of the oldest of all debating devices: setting up a straw man of the concept under fire so as the more conveniently to bowl it over. It is just what Dawkins does with God' --Terry Eagleton, Guardian

'Julian Baggini is that happy thing - a philosopher who recognises that readers go glassy-eyed if presented with high-octane philosophical discourse. And yet, as his latest book, Freedom Regained, makes clear, it is in all our interests to consider crucial aspects of what it means to be human. An excellent book... Baggini wisely eschews the role of priest at the shrine of the oracle, preferring to share with us conversations he has had on the subject of freedom' --Observer

'Freedom Regained is both balanced and convincing, and has many other virtues besides. While firmly rooted in the philosophical tradition, Baggini also gets out and talks to people for whom freedom - and lack of it - is a real and pressing matter. The result is a wide-ranging, wise and stimulating survey. Baggini is right that there are other ways to make sense of human freedom. He has written a stimulating book for those wishing to peel back some of the many layers of what it means to be free' --Literary Review
