Synopsis

Freedom After the Critique of Foundations Marx, Liberalism, Castoriadis and Agonistic Autonomy by Alexandros Kioupkiolis

An exploration of the contemporary re-conception of freedom after the critique of objective truths and ideas of an unchanging human nature, in which modern self-determination was grounded. This book focuses on the radical theorist Cornelius Castoriadis and the new paradigm of 'agonistic autonomy' is contrasted with Marxian and liberal approaches.
