      Good article. I may have to find a copy of Stebbing’s book. A contemporary book with similar goal is Alan Jacobs’ How to Think.

      “For Stebbing, freeing one’s own mind is, uniquely, one’s own personal responsibility, and is, she explains, hindered by ignorance. People might appear to be free, because they live in a liberal democracy, but this apparent freedom can be illusory. Genuine freedom consists in individuals knowing how to think freely.”
