The word freedom is full of ambiguities.
An unemployed man is free, because he is not restricted to behave in a certain way by the schedule of a factory, job, or the burden of daily servitutes. An unemployed man is, still, a slave because he is submitted to restrictions of misery, or the restrictions that his needs impose on him. So he is free to look for and find a job, but his employers are free to offer fim nothing. Consequently, the unemployed man is not free to live any longer. Many unemployed people commit suicide being free to choose not to live. All in all, frredom supposes ambiguities.
Historically speaking, people have associated the notion of freedom with their being free to impose on the others their own will, while the others were slaves, or imposed upon. This social meaning was challenged when certain people discovered that we are born naturally free all of us -; consequently, the individual and the community became fully aware of their social and political rights as free people. Following the path opened by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, some philosophers such as John Locke, David Hume, Edmund Burke, Thomas Hobbes defined natural state as a state of perfect freedom of man to decide upon their actions and make choices according to their will.
This meant political and juridical equality between people: they are equal in front of the law and in front of the political institution. But these considerations refer to political philosophy, demonstrating that fear and freedom are compatible (we do something out of fear but we may refuse to do it; for example, paying taxes we are free not to pay them, but we still do it for fear that we might get sanctions). Liberty is also compatible with necessity.
Philosophically speaking, we need to adopt a form of negative definition so as to apply it to all form of freedom: freedom is the absence of constraints, or restrictions. So, we can accept the existence of types of freedom.
For example, in Physics, we speak about free fall. In Politics, we speak about freedom of association opinion (being independent of the authority of the government), in Economy, we refer to free economic change, meaning trade free from customs taxes, or imposes payments.
Starting from this anlarged definition, the metaphysical philosophers created the concept of absolute freedom.
This idea opposes nature, consisting a kind of passage to the limits: we represent our free action as successively free from any types of causes.
But this type of freedom is the power of acting independently not only in connection with outer, or exterior restrictions, but also in connection with any inner determination. This is called the free will of the metaphysical philosophy, and refers to the misterious power of carrying out actions that are not previously determined by my ideas, my instincts or my aptitudes.
Referring to the free will, we find out that we can not demonstrate the existence of such a type of freedom.
