Freedom through Love

The Search for Meaning in Life: Rudolf Steiner's "Philosophy of Freedom"

What does it mean to be human? What is knowledge? What is freedom? Philosophy offers answers to these questions. However, are its rarefied arguments relevant to people today or merely abstractions? Aren’t we really more occupied with daily survival and the unending problems that surround our human relationships?

Nonetheless, most if not everyone looks for meaning in life. It is less than satisfying to think of ourselves as specks on a random planet in a solar system and part of a vast, clockwork universe. To dismiss consciousness as meaningless or merely a play of chance is to give up our efforts to find any true meaning in existence.

Freedom through Love offers possibilities for dealing with some of these big questions and leads us to satisfying and convincing conclusions. Although based on Rudolf Steiner’s “Philosophy of Freedom,” Nick Thomas does not begin his book with complex philosophical arguments, but with themes that reflect the modern time. “Let us not start with abstract questions far from life, but from life itself,” he suggests in his opening page. Thus, the search for meaning, truth, freedom, and love begins with the realities of our daily life—people and human relationships, which constitute the most difficult, though real, issues of contemporary society and life.
