Summary/Abstract: The issue of the freedom of will was not considered by the author as an issue of sheer action devoid of any thought, feelings and aspirations neither as an issue of the sheer human mind devoid of any activity. The realm of freedom was neither action devoid of consciousness, nor thought devoid of activity but conscientiously carried out, deliberate and purposeful human action. The will, in the sense of a conscious and purposeful human action (or ability to carry out such an action) obeyed the law on causal conditionality. The issue of the freedom of man was above all related to the latter’s acting as such along the path of the dialectical overcoming of all natural, public and material influences which were not in accord with his individual and social human nature.
