Opportunities And Necessity Of Forming The Concept Of Freedom


The purpose of the article is to analyze the content of the concept "freedom" and substantiate the need for its formation. The introduction of this broader mental form into circulation is dictated by the needs of integrating specific content when considering freedom in various areas of humanitarian knowledge. The conceptual and semantic context and the results of the study of the concept of freedom in a number of literary, philosophical, sociological, political and socio-psychological sources are presented. In the literature of F.M. Dostoevsky viewed freedom through the prism of faith, ideal, happiness and even sin. Political science is interested in possible mechanisms for achieving such an attitude and the concept of "regulated freedom" is being developed, which is analyzed in the context of the concepts of "power", "ideology", "non-violence", "pattern of behavior". In social psychology, freedom appears as a subjective feeling of independence and responsibility and is considered in the context of psychological feelings of anxiety and insecurity, irrational tendencies to obey and escape from freedom. Thus, the difference in the conceptual contexts of various areas of humanitarian knowledge in determining the content of freedom leads to the need to form a more complex semantic structure - the concept of freedom, with the help of which it is possible to take into account the semantic diversity of this phenomenon.
