The ZigZag Café

We will be convening here at the ZigZag café, Suisse, on Thursdays for conversation and dialogue. I invite you to stop by every Thursday for the question of the day. Your thoughts and participation are most welcome. Pull up a stool, avec un café, un thé, ou un chocolat chaud, et un croissant, and join in here on Thursday at the ZZ café.

For today:

In his book After you Believe / Virtue Reborn, N.T. Wright states on p.202 in the latter:

“To accept appropriate moral constraints is not to curtail true freedom, but to create the conditions for it to flourish.”

What’s your take on Wright’s perspective?

When I am contrained by something, I am clearly less free in this respect. N. T. Wright probably suggests that with those boundaries there is more freedom for a different trajectory. Which though?

Thanks. On your first sentence. Be good to pose - what is freedom? for the next ZigZag. To be constrained by something may not be opposed to being less free.

Wright mentions "true freedom." So this may be his different trajectory?
