Reviews - What do customers think about A History of Freedom of Thought?

It's easy to see why this is still popular  Sep 18, 2006
Don't let the title scare you. This isn't abstruse philosophy or dry and dusty intellectual history. It's actually a very accessible, very readable defense of "the natural liberty of private thinking" and its essential corollaries, freedom of thought, speech, and action. Bury traces the political, social, religious, and cultural obstacles Western society has placed in the way of freedom of thought from ancient Greece and Rome until the nineteenth century, then presents his justification for intellectual liberty. Drawing from rationalism and J.S. Mills' utilitarianism, Bury concludes that allowing the greatest latitude for freedom of thought, "the axiom of human progress," is by far the best and most beneficial arrangement for individual and society. It's an argument with as much relevance today as when it was first published in 1913.
Excellent Book!  Sep 10, 2005
It is well written, and I recommend this book for anyone interested in history of free thinking.
