Freedom According To Existentialism

‘ Freedom is a word that nurtures human dreams. it does not have nobody that explain and nobody that not entenda.’ ‘ (Ceclia Meirelles) To understand the concept of Freedom in Sartre is not easy task. For the accomplishment of such company, considering the difficulty of access To the workmanships all, was opted to reading intercalated workmanships of the beginning, way and end of its career. They consist in these: Nausea, the Age of the Reason, Suspended Penalty, With the Death in the Soul, the Being and the Nothing, the Existencialismo are a Humanismo, the words, Stories of the Beaver, Between Four Walls, the Data Are launched and Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions. The freedom can be characterized as the choice that the man makes of its proper one to be and of the world (Abbagnano, 2003, P. 619). But for if dealing with a choice, to the step where it is made, generally it indicates others many how much possible choices. The possibility of these other choices is not explicitada or proposal, but it is lived deeply and express in the nonsense of the existence.

This nonsense consists of the fact of Sartre to perceive that, although all the freedom that if can have, of all the decisions that if can be taken, cannot be chosen not to choose, not to opt, not to take decisions. We are responsible, only the responsible ones, for each one of our actions. We construct our existence. Thus, for Sartre, the Freedom ‘ ‘ devora’ ‘ the proper Freedom, therefore affirms that ‘ ‘ nobody entravou my freedom, was my life who bebeu’ ‘ (Sartre, 1986, p 264). The existencialistas in a generalized manner agree to affirming that the question concerning the freedom is not an objective question. It is not questioned if somebody is or not free. Sartre analyzes freedom as condition of the action and affirms that only it is possible to have freedom before a decision.
