Paradoxes of Freedom: The Romantic Mystique of a Transcendence

Clarendon Press (1996)
Paradoxes of Freedom is a study of the philosophical and historical concept of liberty. Centring his argument upon the Romantic exaltation of freedom, Thomas McFarland identifies freedom as one of the three chief transcendences, along with love and religion, by which humanity orientates itself. McFarland indicates, by an examination ranging from Shakespeare and Luther to the writings of Nietzsche and Wagner, both the reasons for the supreme valuation of freedom and the nature of the hindrances, in theory and fact, that enmesh the actual realization of freedom
