The first part of this study illustrates Paul Ricoeur’s thinking on the theme of human freedom, in the face of historical reality marked by evil and threatened by nonsense. Then we analyze the way he proposes to make freedom possible through the construction of social bonds based on love and fraternity. What emerges is that fraternity precedes freedom, it is the place of freedom, since human freedom is the fulfillment of a process of liberation that is possible starting from social bonds of fraternity and love that liberate the possibility of good. In turn, however, fraternity is rooted in a “metaphysical” horizon of overabundant love, which establishes a logic of gift and charity, thanks to which man can, in gratitude, get out of the bottlenecks of finitude that constrain freedom and open the way to the development of one’s skills.

Abstract

The first part of this study illustrates Paul Ricoeur’s thinking on the theme of human freedom, in the face of historical reality marked by evil and threatened by nonsense. Then we analyze the way he proposes to make freedom possible through the construction of social bonds based on love and fraternity. What emerges is that fraternity precedes freedom, it is the place of freedom, since human freedom is the fulfillment of a process of liberation that is possible starting from social bonds of fraternity and love that liberate the possibility of good. In turn, however, fraternity is rooted in a “metaphysical” horizon of overabundant love, which establishes a logic of gift and charity, thanks to which man can, in gratitude, get out of the bottlenecks of finitude that constrain freedom and open the way to the development of one’s skills.
