Description - Faith and Freedom by David B. Burrell
In this book, David Burrell, one of the foremost philosophical theologians in the English-speaking world, presents the culmination of his work on creation and human freedom. Drawing on his philosophical and theological insights from the last twenty years, he develops an integrated argument with far-reaching consequences for capitalist cultures. Engaging with the Islamic, Judaic and Christian traditions, and with modern and pre-modern systems of thought, Burrell dismantles the 'libertarian' approach to freedom that dominates Western politics and economics, proposing that alongside freedom of choice we need freedom of consent. The author's rigorous approach, wry humor and generous spirit are evident throughout.
