SOUL OF THE MARIONETTE A Short Enquiry Into Human Freedom

JOHN GRAY    Book Number: 86270    Product format: Paperback

John Gray makes us face the mirror and see humanity as we are. Everyone thinks they want to be free, or do they? This thought-stirring book on freedom draws together insights from Gnosticism, science fiction, ancient sacrifice and the occult to show that freedom is an illusion and that, like fairground puppets, humans dream of escaping the burden of choice altogether. Ironic since choice has been the buzzword in politics over the last few decades. Described as 'a generous and energising tumble of ideas...Inventive and penetrating" by the FT. Make time for self-reflection as we are introduced to the revelations of Philip K. Dick, dark mirrors, hidden angels, an algorithmic prayer-wheel, a universal Panopticon, Ouija boards and more. 179pp in Penguin paperback.
