Abstract:

Tinder argues for "negative liberty"--The liberty that wants primarily to be left alone, with the authorities interfering as little as possible in the lives of people -- and against "positive liberty"--a liberty that seeks to guide people into a "fulfilling" life. The substance of the book lies at the intersection of several major themes -- communication, human fallenness, the necessity of liberty, standing alone, and eschatology -- each considered in light of learning what liberty truly is and how it will affect the world at large.
