New PDF release: Abolishing Freedom: A Plea for a Contemporary Use of

By Frank Ruda

Pushing again opposed to the modern fable that freedom from oppression is freedom of selection, Frank Ruda resuscitates a primary lesson from the historical past of philosophical rationalism: a formal suggestion of freedom can come up merely from a safety of absolute necessity, utter determinism, and predestination.

Abolishing Freedom demonstrates how the best philosophers of the rationalist culture or even their theological predecessors—Luther, Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Freud—defended not just freedom but additionally predestination and divine providence. via systematically investigating this generally neglected and possible paradoxical truth, Ruda demonstrates how genuine freedom conceptually presupposes the belief that the worst has regularly already occurred; in brief, fatalism. during this brisk and witty interrogation of freedom, Ruda argues that merely rationalist fatalism can remedy the modern illness whose paradoxical identify at the present time is freedom.
