The aim of the study is to analyze two basic stories of human freedom, that of Kant and that of Kierkegaard. In its first part the author tries to uncover the basic motives of both philosophical stories using the film 'Minority report' as the background of his discussion. While according to Kant ethics is the basic manner of true self-understanding, Kierkegaard on the other hand suggests to suspend ethics in order to achieve authentic identity of the Self. Does a universal commitment to oneself exist at all, or is this commitment the basic problem in the search for an authentic freedom?
