This book explores the relationship between the free software movement and freedom. Focusing on five main themes—the emancipatory potential of technology, social liberties, the facilitation of creativity, the objectivity of computing as a scientific practice, and the role of software in a cyborg world—the authors ask, what are the freedoms of free software, and how are they manifested?
