Freedom, Autonomy and Time

01 Feb 2016, Posted by Alexandros in Regenerating Freedom, Writings

The concept of freedom is rich with a variety of meanings it has acquired over the centuries. Its use and abuse by demagogues and its relation with words that share a family resemblance, like liberty and autonomy, that are sometimes used interchangeably make it even harder for someone to understand what is being meant when the word is being used. It thus becomes imperative to introduce some distinctions, terms and definitions to facilitate clarity of communication, and provide the conceptual vocabulary to explain with precision what Regenerating Freedom is about.
