THE DIALECTICS OF LIBERTY:
EXPLORING THE CONTEXT OF HUMAN FREEDOM
INDEPENDENT REVIEW: A JOURNAL OF POLITICAL ECONOMY 25, no. 1 (Summer
By Kathleen Touchstone
Kathleen Touchstone writes:
"The Dialectics of Liberty . . . includes
eighteen essays written by nineteen authors. The essays draw from a variety of
disciplines which include aesthetics, economics, psychology, history, and
philosophy. It is the first collection of works on this subject by scholars with
this range of disciplinary diversity. Dialectics of Liberty represents
an important contribution in advancing dialectical libertarianism."
After surveying all the essays in the book, Touchstone offers a comprehensive discussion of the various themes. She concludes:
"Challenges to freedom of speech and other cultural changes are in need of systematic analysis. Dialectics of Liberty offers perspectives from authors spanning a variety of disciplines on how this analysis could proceed for those willing to take up this challenge. I invite those interested to read DOL. The invitation is not limited to practitioners. The book covers a variety of subjects. There is something to interest virtually anyone."
