Enlightenment is sometimes interpreted as the fullest perfection of life. The problem is man is a biological entity. Some biological facts seem to suggest that man might not be able to be totally free from biological determination. We are subject to evolution- and evolution in a sense is bondage--we can never choose to be as we like to be, but nature will choose everything. The book, which is based on a recent lecture at Vienna, explores the problem: how freedom through enlightenment is possible if what biology says about the nature of human beings is true.
