Aspects of Freedom
May 6, 1964
May 6, 1964. Running time: 47:14. Thurman introduces the topic of human freedom starting with a prose composition he wrote upon his first visit to the west coast of Africa. Freedom, according to Thurman, is deeply intertwined with the individual's sense of self. There would be no freedom without experience or self-will. After establishing this working definition of freedom, Thurman continues onto a discussion on responsibility. Our freedom opens the possibility for actions and reactions, which we are responsible for controlling.
