If my understanding is correct, then Kierkegaard (The Sickness Unto Death) is saying that freedom is impossible.
What I understand from reading:
Guilt is directly proportional with the realization of freedom. The more realization of the freedom will result in more guilt, in the extreme of that lies depression. This results in guilt hindering this freedom. On the other extreme, the schizophrenic is predetermined and destined to follow a single possibility. Since nobody can choose to become obsessed with a certain possibility and to have pure faith in it, therefore the schizophrenic lacks freedom.
Edit: What i want to say is that the freedom of the self (as in schizophrenia) should not be mixed with the freedom of choice which is the freedom of the consciousness.
Is this correct?
