Abstract In a time of complex narrative forces we see the evolution of argument regarding freedom of the market and free access to information. Freedom to read in broader conversations, such as philosophy, must be defended. A particular philosophical stance is advocated, enabling the defence of freedom to read within the profession of librarianship, a freedom that has now been upstaged by an emphasis on information. It is argued that reading is a process that we need in order to contextualise the force of the assertion that the market must be free to operate without constraint.
