In this reissue, originally published in English in 1973, French philosopher Lucien Goldmann turns his attention to the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, the great age of liberalism and individualism and analyses the 'mental structures' of the outlook of the philosophes, who showed that the ancien regime and the privileges of the Church were irrational anachronisms. In assessing the strengths and limitations of individualism, Goldmann considers the achievements and limitations of the Enlightenment. He discusses the views of Hegel and Marx and examines the relation between liberal scepticism and traditional Christianity to point the way to the possible reconciliation of the two seemingly incompatible 'world visions' of East and West today.

A Truer Liberty makes two welcome contributions to Weil studies: it presents the most thorough analysis to date of Weil’s affinities with and divergences from Marxism, and—more importantly—it succeeds in bringing Weil to life as a political theorist whose writings provide some bracing alternatives to the ideological forces that dominate twentieth-century thought ... Blum and Seidler not only inaugurate a new direction in Weil studies; they also show us why her political theorizing deserves serious and more respectful attention than it has hitherto received. - The Review of Politics
