Karl Marx’s thought of freedom originates from Manuscript of Economics and Philosophy in 1844, in which the thought of freedom occupies an important position in his theoretical system. In Manuscript, Karl Marx takes the freedom of labor as the main logic line, pointing out that human nature is the basis of freedom. Karl Marx analyzes in depth the fact that alienated manual labour is one of the segments of free development and he further states briefly that transcendence of alienation is the necessity to freedom. In the alienation of human beings, the essence of human beings exists in the form of being concealed. Therefore, freedom should be the comprehensive reversion of the essence of human beings. The actualization of human freedom is the completion and actualization of human beings, whereas the actualization of freedom must be the positive transcendence of private property.
KEYWORDSKarl Marx, Freedom, Human essence, Alienated Manual Labour, Private Property
