WHOSE FREEDOM? The Battle Over America's Most Important Idea

by | Read by George Lakoff

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

The most critical treatise on the concept of freedom one will ever find, Lakoff's work posits that the United States is currently battling an internal war over whose concept of freedom should direct the nation. Conservative freedom stems from what Lakoff refers to as the "strict father" model, while progressive freedom can be found in his "nurturing family" paradigm. The two concepts represent the freedom to exploit and the freedom from exploitation, respectively. Lakoff, a linguist, delivers an emphatic narration of his book, with special vocal attention to the word "freedom," which appears at least 10 times per page. He navigates listeners through his intense prose with an impressive ability to contextualize his message. L.E. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
