Building upon his previous books about Marx Hayek and Rand Total Freedom completes what Lingua Franca has called Sciabarra's epic scholarly uest to reclaim dialectics usually associated with the Marxian left as a methodology that can revivify libertarian thought Part One surveys the history of dialectics from the ancient Greeks through the Austrian school of economics Part Two investigates in detail the work of Murray Rothbard as a leading modern libertarian in whose thought Sciabarra finds both dialectical and nondialectical elements Ultimately Sciabarra aims for a dialectical libertarian synthesis highlighting the need not sufficiently recognized in liberalism to think of the totality of interconnections in a dynamic system as the way to ensure human freedom while avoiding totalitarianism such as resulted from Marxism
