The Century of the Self

Revisitng an old classic on individuality, freedom and the illusion of choice.

''The range of choice open to the individual is not the decisive factor in determining the degree of human freedom, but what can be chosen and what is chosen by the individual.

"The people recognize themselves in their commodities; they find their soul in their automobile, hi-fi set, split-level home, kitchen equipment."

-Herbert Marcuse
