dc.description.abstractFreedom is the name western culture has given to a particular aspect of human life. This paper is an attempt to make clear a conception of man which will illuminate exactly what is meant by "freedom." Present discussion seems to be a bit garbled. What is usually called freedom is associated with a situation such as this: I sit here typing. I stop for a moment to consider whether or not I would like to type some more. My thoughts run something like this: "I really don't have to type, hell, I've been working on this all day. But I'm really not tired yet, and these ideas do seem to be finding their way to paper easily. " It seems to me, in this moment of deliberation, that what I actually will do next is dependent on my decision. I have the choice of writing some more or not. My decision seems dependent on how I feel and how I think; not on any external condition. This line indicates I have decided to type some more.en_US
