Hence, this Epilogue represents my attempt to provide something of an antidote to these omissions. As we have concluded in Chapter 10, human freedom, if it exists, is a finite, limited resource: we are ‘hemmed in’ on all ‘sides’ by our genes, our environment, the habits of our thoughts, our cognitive ‘stamina’. Yet, there may be grounds for defending a small, ‘narrow’ freedom, in the immediate, lived present (the kind of freedom that the improviser pursues, albeit with varying success).
