"...man is free, in so far as he has the power of contradicting himself and his essential nature. Man is free even from his freedom; that is, he can surrender his humanity."
~ Paul Tillich, 1957, Systematic Theology

I pulled this quote this morning and have thought about it alot. Will right more after I mull it over and determine which context it was used in....

Are you free from your freedom? Or rather, can you be? How? Self inflicted? How does one surrender their humanity? What does that mean?
