"Free Software" - what does that mean?

Keyword: Selbstentfaltung

The notion plays an central role in Oekonux

  • More than self-realization

    Self-realization focuses too much on the isolated individual

    Selbstentfaltung understands humans as formed by their relations

  • Responsibility is part of Selbstentfaltung

    Taking necessities into account belongs to responsibility

    Responsibility needs to be recognized individually

    Responsibility is learned and therefore coupled with the norms of the society

  • Selbstentfaltung is "autonomy-in-interdependence"

    • Dependency is not reduction but extension of own possibilities

      Because others from whom I depend create possibilities by their actions I would not have if only by myself

  • Selbstentfaltung of the single person is direct precondition for the Selbstentfaltung of all

    • And vice-versa
  • Potential for Selbstentfaltung is essential feature of humans

    See critical psychology (Holzkamp)

    • Content is different for every individual

      Particularly it's not necessarily political correct


In general Selbstentfaltung is a desirable goal
