On Freedom

The Theory of Subjectivity

Authored by Ramón Casares
Translated by Nancy Konvalinka

"On Freedom" provides a link that connects life to symbolism. This link sheds light on the true nature of symbolism and makes clear the relation between its two layers: semantics and syntax. Thus, the book gives a Darwinian explanation of symbolism.

So then, where is freedom? I haven't mentioned yet that the link is a problem, more specifically the problem of survival, and there is no problem without freedom.

These are my ten propositions on freedom:

1 Life is a problem.
2 A problem is freedom and a condition.
3 Semantics cannot represent freedom, which is free of meaning.
4 Syntax, with free terms, is needed to represent freedom.
5 A resolution is a syntactical transformation.
6 To represent resolutions, a recursive syntax is needed.
7 A symbolism, with semantics and recursive syntax, can represent problems, resolutions, and solutions.
8 A subject is a symbolic live being.
9 Man is the only living subject.
10 Man is free and conscious.
