DescripcióA profound, original, and accessible book that offers a new secular vision of how we can lead our lives. Ranging from fundamental ex istential questions to the most pressing social issues of our time, This Life shows why our commitment to freedom and democracy shou ld lead us beyond both religion and capitalism.In this groundbreaking book, the philosopher Martin Hägglund challenges our received notions of faith and freedom. The faith we need to cultivate, he argues, is not a religious faith in eternity but a secular faith de voted to our finite life together. He shows that all spiritual questions of freedom are inseparable from economic and material condi tions. What ultimately matters is how we treat one another in this life, and what we do with our time together.Hägglund develops new existential and political principles while transforming our understanding of spiritual life. His critique of religion takes us to t he heart of what it means to mourn our loved ones, be committed, and care about a sustainable world. His critique of capitalism demo nstrates that we fail to sustain our democratic values because our lives depend on wage labor. In clear and pathbreaking terms, Hägg lund explains why capitalism is inimical to our freedom, and why we should instead pursue a novel form of democratic socialism.In de veloping his vision of an emancipated secular life, Hägglund engages with great philosophers from Aristotle to Hegel and Marx, liter ary writers from Dante to Proust and Knausgaard, political economists from Mill to Keynes and Hayek, and religious thinkers from Aug ustine to Kierkegaard andMartin Luther King, Jr. This Life gives us new access to our pastfor the sake of a different future.
