Abstract: The paper considers two possible ways of gaining freedom. The first one is achieved through goal-setting activities, the second one through deed. The authors argue that in the first case, the achievement of true freedom is impossible, since the content of goals involves a human in a series action that generates more stringent dependence forms. Genuine freedom, acquired by means of deed, consists of human activity aimed not at the external but internal conditions transformation and depends on the internal, essential settings, changing personal existence.

Key words: freedom, determinism, teleology, goal, goal setting, action, deed, personal being, transcendence.
