The Recovery of Wonder The New Freedom and the Asceticism of Power Press Reviews

Kenneth Schmitz is a very gifted philosopher whose only fault is to have written too little and thus deprived readers of the pleasure of reading him. In an age where we have historicized human existence to the point of annihilation, Schmitz proposes a notion of freedom that can withstand the particularities of concrete situations. Christophe Potworowski, Department of Catholic Studies, McGill University
