Abstract

The concept of liberty is one of the most controversial dimensions of the human person. It has been subjected to rigorous discourses among great intelligentsia. Its importance spans across every field of human endeavor. Thus, this paper engages this concept in a pragmatic form, assessing its viable operationalization in the human society. Several scholastic propositions on the subject-matter were exhumed in order to present a veridical perception of the concept. This paper attempts to question the practical utility or possibility of the idea of liberty in a human society that is full of inhibitions. At the end of the day, one thing may likely become obvious: Liberty is nothing but an illusory concept with no pragmatic essence in the human society. However, this paper has a bias for Political Liberty as against mere metaphysical pontifwation.
