'David Schindler has written a profound book on freedom. Through his penetrating analysis of Schiller, Schelling, and Hegel, he offers us nothing less than an alternative to the modern notion of freedom as freedom of choice . . . ''The Perfection of Freedom'' wears its erudition lightly in a compelling display of philosophical thinking and re-visioning that will take us beyond modernity by going through it.' óCyril O'Regan, University of Notre Dame

'This is a work marked by impressive erudition and steady, lucid thoughtfulness about the nature of freedom as perfection . . . Schindler looks to some of the great thinkers of classical German philosophy: Schiller, Schelling, and Hegel in particular. The result is a very engaging and illuminating defense of a richer notion of freedom. The scholarship is impressively informed on the historical side, matched on the systematic side with sustained insight into the issues at stake.' óWilliam Desmond, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
