200126 This Life, Why Mortality Makes Us Free.

Boken “This Life, why mortality makes us free” av Filosofen och Litteraturvetaren Martin Hägglund är har blivit omtalad, omskriven och hyllad. “Den svenske litteraturvetaren Martin Hägglunds nya bok ”This life” har fått enastående kritik för dess utopiska vision om en ny vänster. Ett nytt sorts samhälle. Viola Bao har läst en traktat som visar hur allting står på spel.”

“An important new book… Always lucid… Beautifully liberating… And his fundamental secular cry seems right: since time is all we have, we must measure its preciousness in units of freedom. Nothing else will do. Once this glorious idea has taken hold, it is very hard to dislodge… I was convinced, step by step, of the moral rectitude of Hägglund’s argument even as I struggled to imagine the political system that might institute his desired revaluation of value.” James Wood The new yorker
