Description

TLS BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2016

‘Gray must be one of the best read of contemporary philosophers, trawling insouciantly through high-, middle- and low-brow literature with the sharp-eyed eclecticism of a magpie of genius’ John Banville, Guardian

‘Like Isaiah Berlin with a thing for sci-fi’ Tibor Fischer, Spectator

Everyone thinks they want to be free – or do they? John Gray’s thought-stirring new book on freedom draws together insights from Gnosticism, science fiction, ancient sacrifice and the occult to show that freedom is an illusion and that, like fairground puppets, humans dream of escaping the burden of choice altogether.
