9780275929381: Has Freedom a Future? (Convergence Series)

Adolph Lowe, one of the most eminent scholars of political economics now living, has written a broad and philosophical work examining freedom's costs, and the conditions--economic and political--under which it can be established. The culmination of a lifetime of teaching and thought, this book asserts that Western society is in the midst of a revolutionary transformation. Unless a new framework is built to replace traditional constraints, now rejected, this cultural upheaval will result in the breakdown of the order, stability, and freedom that have been the foundation of modern Western society.

Review:

"Adolph Lowe's book on freedom is a tract for our times, the wise testimony of one of the economists worthy of being called a worldly philosopher. It is a tough-minded analysis of the conditions needed for freedom in the modern age. I recommend it for everyone who is not afraid to wrestle with the future."-Robert Heilbroner, Professor of Economics, The New School for Social Research

"Strongly recommended for political scientists, economists, historians, and philosophers."-Choice
