In this tenth volume of the highly respected _ Boston University Studies in Philosophy and Religion _ series, contributors explore new approaches to the role of freedom in the contemporary world. It is clear that the idea of freedom has progressed with autonomous selfhood. But it is not yet evident how freedom is to be understood or promoted in a context where economic, political, cultural, and religious issues demand both pluralism and globalization.
“The lectures and the resulting essays published in this volume probe the future of freedom in a rapidly changing world. The essays are presented under three headings: ‘Theologies of Freedom,’ ‘Philosophies of Freedom,’ and ‘Freedom in Society.’ . . . This reviewer highly recommends the book for students of freedom, the self-other issue, and individualism versus community in today’s world.” — Journal of Church and State
