 The Free Music Philosophy (v1.4 - June 17, 1998; v1.0 - February 1, 1994)
If the freedom of copying and using music appeals to you and you would like the idea spread around, then when you copy a album of anyone, regardless of whether they follow this philosophy or not, send them a donation to enable them to continue their making of music.
The U.S. Constitution, for example, states that the purpose of Copyright is "to promote the progress of science and useful arts." The Free Music Philosophy ensures that both society and the individual benefit.

 This is the Existentialism Page.
Sartre's philosophy is explicitly atheistic and pessimistic; he declared that human beings require a rational basis for their lives but are unable to achieve one, and thus human life is a “futile passion.” Sartre nevertheless insisted that his existentialism is a form of humanism, and he strongly emphasized human freedom, choice, and responsibility.
In the philosophy of Sartre, the word nausea is used for the individual's recognition of the pure contingency of the universe, and the word anguish is used for the recognition of the total freedom of choice that confronts the individual at every moment.
Existentialism as a distinct philosophical and literary movement belongs to the 19th and 20th centuries, but elements of existentialism can be found in the thought (and life) of Socrates, in the Bible, and in the work of many premodern philosophers and writers. /ron/exist.html   (1618 words)

   Sartre's philosophy is explicitly atheistic and pessimistic; he declared that human beings require a rational basis for their lives but are unable to achieve one, and thus human life is a "futile passion."

 Philosophy of education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Critics have accused the philosophy of education of being one the weakest subfields of both philosophy and education, disconnected from philosophy (by being insufficiently rigorous for the tastes of many "real" philosophers) and from the broader study and practice of education (by being too philosophical, too theoretical).
Throughout the education, a great importance is placed upon having free and creative individuals as teachers; thus, schools should have an appropriate amount of freedom to shape their own curriculum and teachers should have a corresponding freedom to shape the daily life of the classroom.
Education thus is a means to fostering the individual's, society's, and even humanity's future development and prosperity. /wiki/Philosophy_of_education   (2484 words)

 Free Will
Finally, there are those who believe freedom of will consists in a distinctively personal form of causality, commonly referred to as “agent causation.” The agent himself causes his choice or action, and this is not to be reductively analyzed as an event within the agent causing the choice.
René Descartes, for example, identifies the faculty of will with freedom of choice, “the ability to do or not do something” (Meditation IV), and even goes so far as to declare that “the will is by its nature so free that it can never be constrained” (Passions of the Soul, I, art.
Free will also appears to be a condition on desert for one's accomplishments (why sustained effort and creative work are praiseworthy); on the autonomy and dignity of persons; and on the value we accord to love and friendship. /entries/freewill   (6416 words)

 (the cry) ------ existentialism
Existentialism is a philosophical movement which emphasizes on individual existence, freedom, and choice.
By this, existentialism states that man exists and in that existence man defines himself and the world in his own subjectivity, and wanders between choice, freedom, and existential angst.

 20th WCP: Critical Comments on Laudan's Theory of Scientific Aims
A philosophy that disqualifies as irrational widely admired or revered goals, as well as their admirers, is a philosophy under suspicion of having too exacting standards, such a doctrine is itself suspected of having 'demonstrably utopian' meta-aims.
These dissidents were thought to be insane, because they would not adapt or conform, because they were maladapted, as was shown by their stubborn and hopeless contest, they were maladapted as was shown by the enormous personal costs they were ready to incur for the sake of their impossible dream: 'bourgeois freedom'.
For Laudan a conformist or resigned slave would be rational, but a frustrated-though self steemed-idealist (such as Spartacus or a Soviet dissident) that would not conform, that would fight for freedom, would not be rational. /wcp/Papers/Scie/ScieCint.htm   (3687 words)

 What's wrong with libertarianism
This radically anti-state political philosophy unites free-market economics, a no-exceptions attachment to private property rights, a profound concern for human liberty, and a love of peace, with the conclusion that society should be completely free to develop absent any interference from the state, which can and should be eliminated.
If complete economic freedom and absence of government is a cure-all, partial economic freedom and limited government should be a cure-some.

 Hegel's First System by Herbert Marcuse, 1941
Hegel thought that without this inner freedom the outer freedom democracy was supposed to institute and protect was of no avail.
Hegel remained faithful to the heritage of the eighteenth century and incorporated its ideals into the very structure of his philosophy.
Hegel recognised the great forward surges that must be generated by the prevailing order of society — the development of material as well as cultural productivity; the destruction of obsolete power relations that hampered the advance of mankind; and the emancipation of the individual so that he might be the free subject of his life. /reference/archive/marcuse/works/reason/marcuse1.htm   (4017 words)

 Hegel's Philosophy of Right: Introduction
Freedom in every philosophy of reflection, whether it be the Kantian or the Friesian, which is the Kantian superficialised, is nothing more than this formal self-activity.
Right in general is something holy, because it is the embodiment of the absolute conception and self-conscious freedom.
Right is positive in general (a) in its form, since it has validity in a state; and this established authority is the principle for the knowledge of right. /reference/archive/hegel/works/pr/printrod.htm   (12461 words)

 Hegel Encyclopedia Article @ (Higher Power)
Modern philosophy, culture, and society seemed to Hegel fraught with contradictions and tensions, such as those between the subject and object of knowledge, mind and nature, self and other, freedom and authority, knowledge and faith, the Enlightenment and Romanticism.
History, however, progresses by learning from its mistakes: only after and precisely because of this experience can one posit the existence of a constitutional state of free citizens, embodying both the benevolent organizing power of rational government and the revolutionary ideals of freedom and equality.
A number of other works on the philosophy of history, religion, aesthetics, and the history of philosophy were compiled from the lecture notes of his students and published posthumously. /encyclopedia/Hegel   (2851 words)
