Rather than trying to prove that we are free, Wember describes a path that enables us to become free. This freedom—which is unrelated to political or other forms of outer freedom—depends on the individual's inner activity. We cannot become free, he states, unless we enliven our volitional forces.
The author brings his ideas alive by relating them to practical, everyday situations. He offers real assistance to anyone who is searching for the next step in personal development. It is ideal for young people (for whom it is primarily written) and provides useful stimulation for those interested in philosophical and life questions.
