On Freedom - Maggie Nelson

On Freedom

Maggie Nelson

23,00  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

The rhetoric of freedom, so often deployed as a chauvinistic, even threatening rallying cry, or constrained by a focus on passing moments of liberation, both awakens and repels. Will it remain the key to autonomy, justice and prosperity, or is freedom’s long finest hour drawing to a close? more

Does the continued obsession with the term enliven and emancipate or reflect a deepening nihilism (or both)? ‘On Freedom’ explores such questions by tracing the complexity of the concept in four different areas: Art, Sex, Drugs and Climate. For Nelson, thinking publicly through the knots in our culture—from recent art-world debates to the turbulent legacies of sexual liberation, from the painful paradoxes of addiction to the lure of despair in the face of the climate crisis—is itself a practice of freedom, a means of forging fortitude, courage, and company. On Freedom is an invigorating, essential book for challenging times.
