Hey guys, Neal here bringing you my first Philosophical Story Challenge. Today’s topic will be freedom; specifically, how practical is freedom? When we go back and read some of the Existentialist writers (Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Nietzche, Dostoevsky, etc.) we see a theme of radical individual freedom. The problem this creates is that it forces a juxtaposition between our individual freedom and the freedom of “the other” which interposes itself on our freedom. Simply put, your challenge is to write a story that answers the question “Is (radical) freedom practical?” So, you probably know the rules, at least you should by now, but in case you don’t: I give you a philosophical question, and you write a story of 100-1000 words that presents and defends your response to the question. Good luck and have fun!
