Concepts make you free is not a motto; it is a fact, which is sustained by the functionality of conceptual knowledge to drive human actions. Having the concepts of what one is doing allows one to be extremely effective and flexible. Access the document on Personal Freedom at:
That is what is made possible by the “personal freedom” an individual has. Personal freedom cannot exist without having conceptual knowledge and vice-versa.
Conceptualizing to achieve personal freedom and using personal freedom to discover or apprehend concepts are necessary for any adaptive behavior in complex environments. This applies to all the roles an individual has in life, including fields such as: family, friendship, work, pastime, etc.
Conceptualization is necessary to deal with complex problems. The level of complexity of a problem depends on the quantity of interdependent autonomous entities that integrate the “unified field” of the solution of the problem. The larger the number of entities, the wider the unified field is, and the more complex it is.
Concepts are not imagined they are discovered following an action-reflection-action process based on acting in the real world. It has to be clarified that conceptual knowledge implies having the abstract emulation of the concept in mind but also the operational procedures.
The more complex a problem is, the higher the level of conceptualization that is required.
